There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll 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 packages, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you could disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
