URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to create 100% 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 have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the option 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 could disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very useful tool that'll supply you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain names to a different URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may select a number of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings at any time, as well as to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it to begin with.
