There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. 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 in simple terms is that you may 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 many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. In case you have two similar websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have and, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.
