There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other site in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to select 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 click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
