URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very useful tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the desired remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a variety of more advanced options too, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it initially.
