URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to set up fully 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 already have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux shared website hosting packages, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow 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 extremely uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you may disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
