URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, if 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 as well, like the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very convenient tool that will provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could choose a number of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings at any time, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it to begin with.
