URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. This way, you'll not miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The task takes several easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors should be forwarded 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 that you set up can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you don't need it anymore.
