There are a number of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared web hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have and, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option to choose 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 can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
