URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared web hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, 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 need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to redirect any of your domain names or subdomains, you can take advantage of the practical redirection tool we've incorporated with our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It'll permit you to forward the visitors within seconds, as all you'll have to do is pick a domain/subdomain and enter the Internet address of the other Internet site. The forwarding will take effect almost immediately. If you are more advanced, you'll be able to change different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be modified for any present redirection as well, so you will not have to set up a new one if you would like to change something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
