There are a lot of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux cloud web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to select 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 can disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding certain content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more experienced users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with several clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
