There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms 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. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like 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 mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans, you'll get access to an efficient tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is a component of the innovative Hepsia Control Panel and can be used by both proficient users and beginners. If you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you're proficient, you could also decide if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. These options can be altered anytime along with the URL, so you will not need to set up a new redirection if you wish to adjust something. However, if you no longer require a specific domain or subdomain to be redirected, you are able to delete the redirection without difficulty.
