There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud web hosting plans, features a URL forwarding 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. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have and, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you can disable it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
