URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss customers while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our shared website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect 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 very easy - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
