URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to create 100% 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 have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared web hosting
, includes a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature to choose 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'll be able to disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server
package deal that we offer will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including particular content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, could be changed with several clicks whenever you want. If you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
