URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to select 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 could disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
