There are a number of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the website visitors must be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you don't require it anymore.

Each semi-dedicated server plan we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be changed with a few mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
