Precisely what is a URL Redirector and exactly how does URL redirection function?
When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are various ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server
package we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by including particular content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more experienced users can also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with several mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as quickly.
