URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing Internet site. In this way, you shall not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users as well, including the possibility to choose 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 can deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
