URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our hosting plans, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more expert users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with a few mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
