URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud service, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when 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 as well, like the possibility to choose 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 deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
