There are a lot of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. 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 in simple terms is that you can 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 kind of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux website hosting packages, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have and, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more experienced users may also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with a couple of mouse clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
