There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name 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 may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared hosting packages, features a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have and, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the feature to select 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 could deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
