There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, you'll be able to redirect any of your domain addresses and subdomains irrespective of the Linux web hosting you have picked. With just several mouse clicks, you can easily create a new redirection even if you haven't used a web hosting account before, due to the fact that our tool is incredibly easy-to-use. For a standard forwarding, you'll only need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the change. The more proficient users can edit other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection shall be activated (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any redirection which you have set up can be deleted with a mouse click anytime.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very useful tool which will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domains to a different URL. While this is normally done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may pick a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings anytime, and to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it initially.
