There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including 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 require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.

It'll permit you to redirect the visitors within seconds, as all you will have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and input the web address of the other website. The forwarding will take effect almost immediately. In case you are knowledgeable, you will be able to change different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options can be altered for any current redirection too, so you'll not have to set up a new one if you wish to edit something. You are able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
