There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain 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 can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

With the point-and-click forwarding tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to forward all of your domain addresses and subdomains irrespective of the website hosting that you've picked. With only a couple of clicks, you can easily create a new redirection even if you haven't used a web hosting account before, because our tool is very intuitive. For a standard redirection, you'll just need to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more knowledgeable users can alter other options also - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding will be activated (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any forwarding that you have set up could be deleted with a mouse click anytime.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with several mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
