Curious about what a URL Redirector is and just how URL redirection works as a whole?
URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one website 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 is hosted, consequently you'll still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting
plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The task takes several basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.

Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a range of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
