URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you'd like 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 difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
