There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have and, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
