There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site 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 shall be able to redirect any of your domains and subdomains no matter the Linux web hosting package that you've selected. With only a couple of clicks, you are able to create a new redirection even if you haven't used a hosting account before, due to the fact that our tool is very easy-to-use. For a standard redirection, you'll simply need to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more advanced users can change other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection will be active (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any redirection that you've set up may be deleted with a click at any time.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very handy tool that'll offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domain names 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 allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could select a number of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, and also to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it from the start.
