There are many ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. 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 could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our shared hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to choose 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 could deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
