There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to redirect all of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the cloud web hosting service you have chosen. With simply a couple of mouse clicks, you can easily set up a new redirection even if you have not used a hosting account before, since our tool is incredibly user-friendly. For a standard redirection, you will just have to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to enter the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more knowledgeable users can change other options also - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding shall be active (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any redirection that you've set up could be deleted with simply a mouse click at any time.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will get access to a helpful tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with a couple of clicks. The tool is a component of the advanced Hepsia CP and could be used by both expert users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you'll be able to redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you're more advanced, you could also choose if the type of the redirection has to be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. Each of these options could be modified at any time as well as the URL, so you will not have to create a new redirection if you'd like to adjust something. Naturally, if you no longer need a particular domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection without difficulty.
