There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you can forward the traffic, 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 similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have and, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
