There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes 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 may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, 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 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux hosting, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have and, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to choose 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 may deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
