URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux web hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to select 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 may deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
