URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared website hosting service, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option 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 need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server package we provide will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we shall supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with a few mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
