There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding 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 could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our cloud hosting plans, features a URL redirection 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 quite easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the option 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 deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
