URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain 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 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 shall be sent to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a number of basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors must be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you start a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to forward any one of your domain addresses or subdomains, you can take advantage of the practical redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It'll enable you to redirect the visitors within seconds, due to the fact that all you will have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and enter the Internet address of the other site. The forwarding will take effect right away. If you are more advanced, you will be able to modify different options, including the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options may be modified for any present redirection also, so you'll not have to create a new one if you want to change something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
