URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be redirected to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to select 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 click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very useful tool which will provide you with an automated and simple way to forward any of your domain names to a different URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in just seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could pick a variety of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings whenever you want, and also to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it from the start.
