There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared services, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have and, you could forward just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
