URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature 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 can deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

When you create a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to forward any of your domains or subdomains, you can use the convenient redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia website hosting CP. It'll permit you to redirect the website visitors within seconds, considering that all you'll have to do is select a domain/subdomain and input the Internet address of the other Internet site. The forwarding shall take effect very quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you shall be able to modify different options, including the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options could be altered for any already present redirection as well, so you will not need to create a new one if you would like to edit something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
