URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to pick 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 disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we shall give you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more expert users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with several mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
