URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors have to be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.
