URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. This way, you will not miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our cloud web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature to select 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 disable it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
