There are various 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 address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
With the point-and-click forwarding tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia CP, you shall be able to forward each of your domains and subdomains whatever the Linux cloud hosting you have chosen. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you could set up a new redirection even if you never used a hosting account before, since our tool is extremely intuitive. For a standard redirection, you'll only have to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to input the new URL, and then to save the progress. The more advanced users can change other options also - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding shall be active (the main domain folder or a specific subfolder). Any redirection you have set up could be deleted with just a mouse click anytime.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be modified with several mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
