URL redirection allows you to redirect 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, consequently you'll still have the ability to create completely 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 have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you can disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
