URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux shared hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward 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 simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you start a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to forward any of your domain names or subdomains, you can benefit from the very useful redirection tool that we have incorporated with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It shall allow you to forward the traffic within seconds, due to the fact that all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and type the web address of the other Internet site. The redirection shall take effect very quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you'll be able to change different options, including the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be changed for any existing redirection as well, so you will not need to create a new one if you would like to modify something. You could remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
