URL redirection enables you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. In this way, you will not miss potential clients while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared website hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
