There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
With the point-and-click forwarding tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to redirect each of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the Linux website hosting package you have picked. With only a few clicks, you could set up a new redirection even if you have not used a website hosting account before, because our tool is extremely intuitive. For a standard redirection, you'll simply need to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to input the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more proficient users can change other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection shall be enabled (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any redirection which you have set up may be deleted with only a mouse click anytime.
