URL redirection permits you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you shall still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux web hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the feature to pick 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 click from the very same section of the CP.
