URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss potential customers while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared website hosting services, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, 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 may disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to forward any of your domain addresses or subdomains, you can take advantage of the convenient redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It will allow you to forward the traffic within seconds, considering that all you will have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and type the web address of the other site. The forwarding will take effect instantly. If you are experienced, you'll be able to edit different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be altered for any already present redirection too, so you will not need to create a new one if you want to modify something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
