There are a number 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 forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our cloud hosting plans, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features 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 may deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to forward any of your domain names or subdomains, you can take advantage of the convenient redirection tool we have included with our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It shall permit you to forward the visitors within seconds, due to the fact that all you'll have to do is pick a domain/subdomain and enter the Internet address of the other Internet site. The forwarding will take effect quickly. In case you are more advanced, you will be able to modify different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be changed for any active redirection as well, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you would like to modify something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
