There are a lot of ways to redirect site 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 possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to pick 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 may deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you shall get access to a helpful tool, which you can use to forward any domain hosted inside the account with just a few clicks. The tool is an element of the advanced Hepsia CP and could be used by both advanced users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you'll be able to redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you're more advanced, you may also choose if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. All of these options may be altered at any time along with the URL, so you will not have to set up a new redirection if you want to adjust something. Needless to say, when you no longer require a certain domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection without any difficulty.
