URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you will still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you would like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a number of simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to pick 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 the URL to which the website visitors should be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in case you don't need it anymore.

Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary).

In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
