URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you won't miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
