There are a lot of ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you may forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux website hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the possibility 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 can deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
