Domain Forwarding Features

Prevent Cyber Squatting:
Many businesses reserve additional domain names to prevent "cyber squatting" by domain vultures and to maintain control of their intellectual property. These domain names can be put to good use by directing visitors to the web site.

Expand Your Web Site:
To give the impression that your web site is larger than it actually is, you may use forwarded domains to target "departments" of your site. Even though each "department" may be as small as one page, you can use a domain such as www.companyservice.com to forward to www.company.com/service.html. When marketing your "departments," this will give the impression to your visitors that your site is in fact much larger than it actually is and it will become much easier to distribute links to your site.

Free e-mail from !HitNet:
If you are currently hosting with HitNet, Inc., you may receive free email at your forwarded domain! With your current hosting account (www.abc.com), all email address at your forwarded domain (www.xyz.com) will instantly be available under the parent. For example, if your current hosting domain name is www.abc.com and at that domain you have the email address info@abc.com, when you sign up for a forwarded domain www.xyz.com you will instantly have the email address info@xyz.com if you have requested so. This email address will simply forward on to info@abc.com. It's that simple!

Multilingual Support:
Accessibility is an important factor in today's web experience. With domain forwarding, you can offer users a domain name for the secondary or tertiary language that your site is written in. For instance, www.yourcompanyespanol.com can forward into www.yourcompany.com/espanol thus eliminating the need for multiple hosting accounts.

 

DOMAIN NAME FORWARDING

Domain Name Forwarding allows you, the customer, to use additional domain names to direct visitors to your main web site (the "parent" domain). By using additional domain names, you are able to provide visitors with alternative avenues to find you. Your business may be known by several names or acronyms-these may be used in domain names that point to your web site. Businesses who have unusual spellings and common misspellings can use these misspellings as alternative domain names that direct the user to the web site.

What is Domain Forwarding?
Domain forwarding links your domain name to any web address, putting your domain name to immediate use. When using a domain name for a website, we can forward people typing in www.your-name.com to your actual web site, wherever that may be.

For example, if 'Example company' had a free website at http://www.hitnet.com/members/index.htm then we could set up www.example.com to point to that web page.

It is like Call Forwarding on your phone - a visitor just knows that they are at your web site, and it is invisible to them how they got there.

Internal Links:
Additional domain names may also target internal links (pages or sections) of your web site. For example, if an attorney wants their clients to be able to go directly to his own page, a secondary domain name can be used to direct the visitor to that part of the firm's web site.
