There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared packages, features a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you'll get access to a useful tool, that you can use to forward any domain hosted in the account with a couple of clicks. The tool is an element of the advanced Hepsia CP and could be used by both proficient users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you can forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you're proficient, you can also choose if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. These options may be altered whenever you want along with the URL, so you won't have to create a new redirection if you want to adjust something. Naturally, when you no longer need a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you are able to delete the redirection without difficulty.
