URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you will still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, including the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
