There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. 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 kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux cloud hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when 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 as well, like the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
