URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux web hosting services, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option 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 are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options too, most notably 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 modify these settings whenever you want, and to delete an existing redirection from the same exact section where you have created it in the first place.
