URL redirection permits you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to pick 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 could disable it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
