There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain 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 can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux website hosting, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have and, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very handy tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content in it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a certain folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it to start with.
