URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared hosting service, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility 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 are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to redirect any one of your domains or subdomains, you can benefit from the very useful redirection tool we've included with our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It shall enable you to redirect the visitors within seconds, because all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and input the web address of the other website. The redirection will take effect quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you'll be able to modify different options, including the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options can be altered for any active redirection as well, so you will not need to set up a new one if you wish to modify something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
