URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you'll still be able to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any problem. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing site. That way, you won't miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect 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 easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the option to select 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 deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
