There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer a handy and incredibly simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so in case that you have a cloud website hosting account with our company, you can take advantage of it, if needed. Any domain address or subdomain hosted within the account may be forwarded, so you'll only have to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the primary folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to type in the new Internet address, regardless of whether it is pointing to a different Internet in your account or to an Internet site on a remote server. The forwarding shall be active almost instantly. If you are more experienced, you will have a number of advanced options to pick from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All of the redirections will be listed in exactly the same section, so when you don't need a certain one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very useful tool that will supply you with an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domain names to a different URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a range of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to change these settings at any time, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it from the start.
