URL redirection permits you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, and thus you will still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss potential customers while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a cloud website hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes several easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the visitors should 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 which you set up could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you do not need it anymore.
