URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux cloud hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, including the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you can disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very handy tool that will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be active in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can select a range of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings at any time, and also to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it to begin with.
