URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux web hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to select 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 could disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated servers, you shall get access to a handy tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted inside the account with several clicks. The tool is part of the sophisticated Hepsia CP and can easily be used by both advanced users and rookies. In case you have no previous experience, you'll be able to redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. In case you are expert, you can even decide if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method must be direct or match. These options could be altered whenever you want as well as the URL, so you won't have to create a new redirection if you wish to adjust something. Naturally, when you no longer want a certain domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection with ease.
