There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain 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 may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other site to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, if you have and, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to select 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 could disable it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
