URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing website. This way, you will not miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our cloud plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded 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 just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature 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 could deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
