There are a number of 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 possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
