There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name 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 choose to switch your domain address, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other website to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to redirect any of your domain addresses and subdomains irrespective of the Linux cloud website hosting package that you've selected. With simply several clicks, you can easily create a new redirection even if you have never used a website hosting account before, as our tool is extremely easy-to-use. For a standard forwarding, you will only need to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to input the new URL, and then to save the change. The more experienced users can change 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 particular subfolder). Any redirection that you have created could be deleted with a click at any time.

Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be activated in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a variety of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
