Web Forwarding
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 17 September 2006 01:13 AM

If you have a need to redirect your entire website to another hosted domain, without having to use a Virtual Directory, remove the site and re-add it as a Domain Alias, or without having to use our 301/302 Redirect Code, you can use Web Forwarding.

 

To Enable and Confirgure Web Forwarding

 

  1. Login to the Account Center
  2. Click the green 'Control Panel' button
  3. Navigate to Websites
  4. Click on website you would like web forwarding
  5. Choose redirect to URL, enter URL, Update

 

Exact URL

If Exact URL is ticked then whenever anyone visits a page on this domain, they will be sent to that URL. If it is not ticked, the visitor will be sent to the same page on the redirect url. For example if you enter "www.somedomain.com/fred" into the URL, and a visitor visits /page1.htm the visitor will be redirected to "www.somedomain.com/fred/page1.htm"

 

Permanant Redirection: (Alse See: 301/302 Redirect Code for a better option)

If ticked, a visitors browser received a 301 Permanant Redirect instead of a 302 Temporary Redirect status message. Leave it off if you are unsure what this means.
