There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially 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 type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have and, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
