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.
