There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can 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. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, you shall be able to redirect each of your domain addresses and subdomains no matter the shared web hosting that you have chosen. With just several clicks, you could create a new redirection even if you have not used a hosting account before, since our tool is incredibly intuitive. For a standard forwarding, you will simply need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more knowledgeable users can edit other options also - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding shall be active (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any redirection which you have set up may be deleted with a click at any time.

In case that you have no previous experience, you'll be able to redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you may also choose if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. Each of these options could be altered anytime along with the URL, so you won't need to set up a new redirection if you want to adjust something. However, if you no longer want a specific domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you can delete the redirection without any difficulty.
