URL redirection permits you to forward traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss potential clients while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature 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 require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very useful tool that will supply you with an automated and easy way to forward any of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a variety of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to edit these settings anytime, and also to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it to start with.
