URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, meaning that you will still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
