There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have and, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options 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 forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server package we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users may also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with several clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
