Redirect visitor based on geolocation with #EasierHosting

Redirection by geolocation

You can now redirect your website's visitor depending on geolocation, i.e. what continent, country, or city the visitor is located in, to a certain page within your website, to a subdomain, or to an entirely different domain.

Example 1: You have a website on the domain great-trips.us and you want to launch a website with resources suited for your European visitors. Now you would like the European visitors to be redirected from great-trips.us to great-trips.eu.

Example 2: You have a website in English and you have translated its content for your Russian visitors who can now read the same content under the subdirectory /rus/. Now you would like visitors from Russian-speaking countries to be automatically redirected to that part of your website.

This is now easy to do from the hosting control panel at ServeU.NET:

  1. Under the menu My domains, find DNS Records and click it
  2. Click the button Add a new record up at the right side
  3. Choose the domain you want to redirect from in the dropdown list
  4. Choose a record type, e.g. CNAME if you want to redirect to a certain web address
  5. Value should be in the format targetsite.com if you choose CNAME
  6. Select Enable GeoIP and choose continent / country / city as a condition for your redirection
  7. Save and wait for DNS records to be updated globally
