URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, consequently you will still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility 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 require a redirection, you may disable it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
