There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. 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 could 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 type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility 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 may deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
