URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The procedure takes a few simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you don't require it anymore.

The forwarding shall take effect instantly. If you are knowledgeable, you shall be able to edit different options, like the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be altered for any existing redirection as well, so you will not need to create a new one if you want to change something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
