There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have and, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.
