There are a number 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 name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite easy - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have and, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to choose 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 are able to disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.
