URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that 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 address in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our hosting plans, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward 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 incredibly simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including the possibility 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 can deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very useful tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a variety of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it initially.
