URL redirection permits you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward 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 uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like 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 can deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server package which we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will simply have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with a few clicks anytime. If you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
