There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase any of our semi-dedicated servers, you'll get access to a helpful tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted within the account with just a few clicks. The tool is a component of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and can easily be used by both advanced users and novices. If you have no previous experience, you can redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing or pasting the remote URL. If you're expert, you could also decide if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method needs to be direct or match. These options can be altered at any time along with the URL, so you won't need to set up a new redirection if you want to modify something. Of course, when you no longer want a given domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you can delete the redirection with ease.
