URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to create entirely 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 have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to select 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 may disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
