URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared plans, 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. Creating a new redirection is very simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to pick 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 are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
