URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, 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 are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you shall get access to an efficient tool, which you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with just a few clicks. The tool is part of the sophisticated Hepsia CP and can be used by both experienced users and beginners. If you have no previous experience, you could forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing or pasting the remote URL. If you're expert, you could also choose if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. These options may be modified anytime as well as the URL, so you shall not have to set up a new redirection if you wish to adjust something. However, when you no longer require a specific domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you'll be able to delete the redirection with ease.
