URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. When a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility 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 require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to redirect any one of your domain addresses or subdomains, you can benefit from the convenient redirection tool we've included with our custom Hepsia website hosting CP. It'll allow you to redirect the visitors within seconds, due to the fact that all you will have to do is pick a domain/subdomain and enter the Internet address of the other website. The forwarding will take effect quickly. In case you are more advanced, you will be able to modify different options, like the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any active redirection also, so you will not have to set up a new one if you wish to edit something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
