There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our cloud website hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, including the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.

If you're more tech-savvy, you could select a number of more advanced options too, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).

You shall be able to change these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to start with.
