URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, consequently you will still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. That way, you won't miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.

The forwarding will be active almost immediately. In case you are more experienced, you will have a number of advanced options to select from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All the redirections shall be listed in the same section, so whenever you don't need a particular one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very useful tool that'll offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be active within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may select a range of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section where you have created it to start with.
