URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create 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 already have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you won't miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be activated within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).

You will be able to modify these settings whenever you want, and to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it from the start.
