There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may 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 feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have and, you can forward just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
