URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, consequently you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. That way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors should 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 you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
