URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. That way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting plans, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain 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 sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
