There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to redirect each of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the Linux web hosting that you have selected. With only a couple of clicks, you can create a new redirection even if you haven't used a hosting account before, because our tool is incredibly easy-to-use. For a standard forwarding, you'll only need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more advanced users can change other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding will be enabled (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any redirection that you have created can be deleted with simply a click at any time.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server offers come with a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a number of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to change these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to begin with.
