URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, consequently you'll still be able to create completely 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 an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, including the feature to pick 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 are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.
