There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms 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 feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you may redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared web hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to pick 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 may deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
