URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you will 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 currently have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our web hosting service, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable 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 extremely simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very useful tool which will supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could choose a variety of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it from the start.
