URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a range of more advanced options too, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and to delete an active redirection from the same section in which you have created it from the start.
