There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have two similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer a convenient and really simple-to-use tool for creating a URL forwarding, so if you have a cloud web hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain name or subdomain hosted within the account could be redirected, so you will just need to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the primary folder or a subfolder shall be redirected and to input the new Internet address, regardless if it is pointing to a different website in your account or to a website on a remote web server. The forwarding will be activated almost instantaneously. If you're more experienced, you'll have a range of advanced options to choose from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All of the redirections shall be listed in exactly the same section, so if you don't need a particular one anymore, you can cancel it with a mouse click.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very handy tool which will supply you with an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be activated in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may pick a number of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it in the first place.
