There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

With the point-and-click forwarding tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to redirect all of your domain addresses and subdomains irrespective of the Linux shared website hosting plan that you've chosen. With simply a couple of clicks, you can set up a new redirection even if you never used a hosting account before, as our tool is incredibly easy-to-use. For a standard redirection, you'll just need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more experienced users can alter other options as well - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection will be active (the main domain folder or a specific subfolder). Any forwarding that you have created can be deleted with a mouse click at any time.
