URL redirection permits you to redirect targeted traffic from one 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 is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to create 100% 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 currently have a website, for instance, but you'd 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 site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will get access to an efficient tool, you can use to forward any domain hosted inside the account with a few clicks. The tool is a component of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and may be used by both expert users and beginners. If 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. In case you are experienced, you could also choose if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method needs to be direct or match. Each of these options could be changed anytime along with the URL, so you won't have to set up a new redirection if you would like to modify something. Naturally, if you no longer want a given domain or subdomain to be redirected, you can delete the redirection with ease.
