There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only have to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors have to be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be altered with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
