URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud website hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if 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, such as 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 require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
