URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
When you host your websites with our company and you have a website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes several basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain address 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 enter the URL where the traffic must be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not need it anymore.

You are able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
