URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, consequently you will still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you will not miss potential clients while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. This process takes just a few basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors must be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.

If you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you can even choose if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. Each of these options can be altered at any time along with the URL, so you won't have to set up a new redirection if you'd like to modify something.
