URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our website hosting plans, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility 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'll be able to disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
