URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. This way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared web hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to select 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated servers, you'll get access to a handy tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted within the account with a couple of clicks. The tool is an element of the innovative Hepsia CP and may be used by both experienced users and novices. In case you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. In case you are expert, you can even decide if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. Each of these options can be modified anytime along with the URL, so you won't need to create a new redirection if you want to change something. Needless to say, when you no longer require a certain domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection without difficulty.
