There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward 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 extremely easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to select 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 exact same section of the Control Panel.
