URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. That way, you won't miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors have to be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.
