There are a number of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be active in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a specific folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and also to delete an existing redirection from the same exact section where you have created it in the first place.
