URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you shall get access to a useful tool, which you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with a few clicks. The tool is a component of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and can easily be used by both proficient users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you'll be able to redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you're proficient, you can even choose if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. These options can be modified whenever you want as well as the URL, so you won't need to set up a new redirection if you'd like to change something. Of course, if you no longer require a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection without any difficulty.
