URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will get access to a useful tool, you can use to redirect any domain hosted inside the account with several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and may be used by both expert users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you'll be able to forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you're proficient, you can also choose if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. These options may be modified anytime along with the URL, so you shall not have to create a new redirection if you would like to modify something. Needless to say, when you no longer require a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you could delete the redirection without difficulty.
