There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have two identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
With the point-and-click forwarding tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP, you'll be able to forward all of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the Linux cloud web hosting service which you have chosen. With simply a couple of mouse clicks, you could create a new redirection even if you have not used a website hosting account before, because our tool is really easy-to-use. For a standard redirection, you'll simply have to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more advanced users can alter other options as well - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding shall be active (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any forwarding that you've set up could be deleted with only a mouse click anytime.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be active in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a variety of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to start with.
