URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. That way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our hosting services, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to choose 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 could deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server plan we provide will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to select 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 shall be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, can be altered with just a few mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
