Services > Web forwarding
Our web forwarding service can be used to point your domain name to your website. This service is especially designed if your web host do not provide DNS management. For example your internet access provider or free web host providers.
When Internet users enter your domain name in the browser address bar, our servers will forward them to the location where your web site is hosted. Each of your subdomains can benefit from a different redirection.
Our web forwarding service
NETIM provides three different methods of web forwarding:
- Direct forwarding
The Internet user will be redirected to the URL of your choice, but the initial domain name in the browser's address bar will be replaced by the target address.
For experts, this mode can be set in permanent redirect (HTTP code 301) or temporary (HTTP code 302) to be consistent with the RFC and search engines.
- Masked forwarding
The Internet user will be redirected to the URL of your choice but the initial domain name will stay in the browser's address bar. The URL's contents will then be displayed for the domain name.
For experts, this mode can be set with a custom title or with an auto recovery of metatags. The masked forwarding is built on html frames.
- IP forwarding
All HTTP requests will be redirected to the IP of your choice. This means that you can host your domain name on your own server. You are then in charge of managing the HTTP server and distributing the pages to Internet users
