URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one website 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 address is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our hosting, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to pick 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'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
