There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two very similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the site visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users too, including the option 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 may deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
