URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility 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 deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
