URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, 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 difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users too, such as 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more expert users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with a couple of clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
