URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, consequently you'll still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you need 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 difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing website. That way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes just a few easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the visitors have to be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could choose a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
