URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to set up fully 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 have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. In this way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared web hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, including 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 need a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
