There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address 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 can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server package we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including particular content to it, we'll supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with a few clicks at any time. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
