URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you won't miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes a few simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to choose 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 input the URL to which the site visitors have to be redirected 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 that you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you do not need it anymore.
