How to create a free web redirection?

This function allows you to redirect your domain to existing website. If you have, for example, a website in free hosting service with very long name, you may buy a domain and redirect it to the that website. It will allow your visitors inserting in the browser the name of your domain instead of long name of your hosting.

Requirements: To be able to use our ORT (OVH Redirection Technology), the domain must have OVH's DNS (dns11.ovh.net & ns11.ovh.net).

In order to create a redirection, log into Manager v3.

Then click the name of the domain in the menu on the left.
Choose "Domain & DNS" , and "Web redirection" and then "Create".

The following site will be visible:



- "redirection for" field, please leave it empty;
- "to" - insert detailed address where you want to redirect your domain;
- "Type" - choose if it's visible or invisible ORT.
