There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms 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 type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature 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 need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
