URL redirection permits you to forward traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature 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 are able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
