URL redirection permits you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss potential clients while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared hosting services, features a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain 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 must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you may disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
