There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible 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 may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux website hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the possibility to pick 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 are able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
