URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, consequently 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 have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared web hosting services, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to pick 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 may disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.

In case you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).

You will be able to modify these settings anytime, and also to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it in the first place.
