URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to create fully 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 have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux website hosting services, 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. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option 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 can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will get access to an efficient tool, you can use to forward any domain hosted in the account with a couple of clicks. The tool is an element of the advanced Hepsia CP and could be used by both experienced users and beginners. In case that you have no previous experience, you can forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you're proficient, you can even decide if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. All of these options may be altered at any time along with the URL, so you will not have to set up a new redirection if you'd like to modify something. Naturally, when you no longer want a specific domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection without any difficulty.
