URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to choose 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 same exact section of the Control Panel.
