URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you will still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you won't miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our cloud website hosting, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more expert users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be modified with several mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
