URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. In this way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared website hosting plans, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside 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 redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the option 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 need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server offers include a very handy tool that'll offer you an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content in it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may pick a variety of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings anytime, and also to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it from the start.
