There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have and, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to pick 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'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
