URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes a number of easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You will only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors have to be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to redirect any of your domains or subdomains, you can take advantage of the very useful redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It'll enable you to forward the visitors within seconds, as all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and enter the web address of the other site. The forwarding will take effect right away. In case you are proficient, you will be able to modify different options, such as the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be altered for any present redirection also, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you wish to edit something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
