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, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain 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 set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared website hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have and, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
