There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could 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 name, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect 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 rather uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have and, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, like 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 need a redirection, you can disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.
