URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that 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, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing website. This way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux cloud website hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, 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 too, such as the option 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 deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
