URL redirection permits you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared plans, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, like the feature 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 require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
