There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared web hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have and, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will just need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with a few mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
