There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain 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 could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux shared web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility 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 require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any of your domain addresses some other URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be active in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a number of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings anytime, and even to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it in the first place.
