There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect 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 rather easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, such as the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
