URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our cloud website hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to pick 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 can deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very useful tool which will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domain names to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be active within seconds. In case 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 even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings anytime, and also to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to begin with.
