There are a number of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have and, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to choose 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 could disable it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very handy tool which will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could choose a number of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to start with.
