There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible 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 may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
With the point-and-click forwarding tool, that's a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, you shall be able to redirect each of your domain addresses and subdomains whatever the shared hosting service that you've selected. With only several clicks, you could set up a new redirection even if you never used a website hosting account before, since our tool is very user-friendly. For a standard redirection, you will simply need to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more advanced users can change other options too - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection will be activated (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any forwarding that you have set up can be deleted with only a click at any time.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated service, you'll get access to a helpful tool, you can use to redirect any domain hosted inside the account with several clicks. The tool is a component of the advanced Hepsia Control Panel and can easily be used by both expert users and beginners. In case that you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you may also decide if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method needs to be direct or match. All of these options may be altered anytime along with the URL, so you won't have to set up a new redirection if you wish to modify something. Naturally, if you no longer require a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection with ease.
