There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have and, you may forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.
