URL redirection allows you to redirect site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our cloud website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
