URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes a number of basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors should be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to forward any one of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the very useful redirection tool we've incorporated with our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It'll allow you to forward the traffic within seconds, because all you will have to do is select a domain/subdomain and type in the web address of the other site. The redirection will take effect quickly. In case you are more advanced, you will be able to edit different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options could be changed for any current redirection also, so you'll not need to create a new one if you would like to change something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
