URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one Internet 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, and thus you shall still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss potential clients while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable 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 quite uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option 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 require a redirection, you may disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domains some other URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a variety of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a certain folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it from the start.
