URL redirection permits you to redirect site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature 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 need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very useful tool which will supply you with an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will enable 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 forwarding shall be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a range of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to begin with.
