URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, consequently you will still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. This way, you will not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our cloud hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should 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 can forward just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very useful tool that will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain names some other URL.

Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be activated within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may pick a variety of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings anytime, and also to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to begin with.
