There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes just a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the site visitors have to be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very handy tool that'll offer you an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a number of more advanced options also, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and also to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it in the first place.
