There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users may also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be modified with just a few clicks at any time. If you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
