URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced options 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, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we shall give you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with a few mouse clicks at any time. If you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
