URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting service, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server plan we offer will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more expert users can also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, could be changed with just a few clicks whenever you want. If you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
