There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux hosting service, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have and, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we shall supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, could be modified with a few clicks whenever you want. If you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
