There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
With the point-and-click forwarding tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you shall be able to forward each of your domains and subdomains whatever the cloud website hosting that you have picked. With just several mouse clicks, you could set up a new redirection even if you have not used a hosting account before, since our tool is really user-friendly. For a standard redirection, you will simply have to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to input the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more knowledgeable users can modify other options as well - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection shall be active (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any forwarding which you have set up can be deleted with only a click whenever you want.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more expert users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with several mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
