There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our hosting service, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature 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 are able to disable it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you wish to redirect any one of your domains or subdomains, you can use the convenient redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It'll allow you to redirect the website visitors within seconds, as all you will need to do is pick a domain/subdomain and input the web address of the other Internet site. The redirection will take effect right away. If you are experienced, you shall be able to edit different options, such as the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be altered for any active redirection also, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you want to change something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
