URL redirection permits you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you will still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared website hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, including the possibility 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 may deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
