URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our web hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature 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 require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very convenient tool that'll offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domain names to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be active in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a range of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings anytime, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it to start with.
