There are many ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared web hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, including the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you can disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
