There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes a few easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the site visitors have to be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with several mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
