URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, consequently you shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you need to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you won't miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux website hosting packages, includes 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. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and also to delete an existing redirection from the same exact section where you have created it initially.
