URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared web hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very useful tool which will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could choose a number of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to begin with.
