URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux website hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very easy - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could select a variety of more advanced options also, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings at any time, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it from the start.
