There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name 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. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our web hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, like the option 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 require a redirection, you may disable it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server plan we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we shall give you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. If you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
