URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one Internet site 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 is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. That way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very uncomplicated - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
