URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you shall get access to a helpful tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted inside the account with a few mouse clicks. The tool is an element of the sophisticated Hepsia CP and could be used by both advanced users and novices. In case you have no previous experience, you can forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing in or pasting the remote URL. If you're more advanced, you can also decide if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. Any of these options can be changed whenever you want along with the URL, so you won't need to set up a new redirection if you would like to modify something. Needless to say, if you no longer require a certain domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you can delete the redirection without any difficulty.
