URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss potential clients while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, including the option to select 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 could deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more experienced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with just a few clicks whenever you want. If you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
