There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case 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 want to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud website hosting service, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option 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 need a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
