URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. When a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you'll not miss potential clients while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow 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 incredibly easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, 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 may disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
