URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux website hosting
, features a URL redirection 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. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the feature 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'll be able to disable it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
solutions come with a very useful tool which will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in just seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a number of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings at any time, and to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it in the first place.
