URL redirection permits you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you would like 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. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our web hosting plans, provides a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has advanced 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, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
