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

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

With the point-and-click redirection tool, that's a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to redirect any of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the cloud website hosting that you have selected. With only a few clicks, you can easily set up a new redirection even if you haven't used a hosting account before, due to the fact that our tool is incredibly intuitive. For a standard forwarding, you will just need to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to input the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more advanced users can modify other options too - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding will be active (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any redirection that you've created may be deleted with only a click whenever you want.
