There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux shared web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have and, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.
