There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to redirect all of your domains and subdomains irrespective of the shared web hosting which you have picked. With only several mouse clicks, you could create a new redirection even if you have never used a web hosting account before, as our tool is incredibly easy-to-use. For a standard redirection, you will just have to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more proficient users can edit other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding shall be enabled (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any forwarding that you've created can be deleted with a click whenever you want.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very handy tool which will supply you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain names to a different URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options too, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to start with.
