URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing website. That way, you shall not miss potential customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit 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 quite easy - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility 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 require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
