URL redirection allows you to forward 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 address is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. In this way, you will not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option 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'll be able to disable it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
