URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our website hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable 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 very simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server offers include a very useful tool that will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domains to a different URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will allow you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may pick a range of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it to begin with.
