URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to select 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 may deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server package that we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with a couple of clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
