URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to create completely 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 currently have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our website hosting services, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including 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 require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be modified with several clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
