URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. This way, you won't miss potential clients while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option 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 are able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may select a variety of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to start with.
