URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you won't miss potential clients while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, that's a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to forward any of your domain names and subdomains regardless of the Linux web hosting that you've chosen. With simply several clicks, you can easily set up a new redirection even if you haven't used a website hosting account before, as our tool is extremely user-friendly. For a standard forwarding, you'll only have to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more knowledgeable users can modify other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection shall be enabled (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any forwarding which you have set up may be deleted with simply a click whenever you want.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a number of more advanced options also, 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 will be able to modify these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it to start with.
