URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The procedure takes just a few simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you don't require it anymore.
