There are a number of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible 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 may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux shared web hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, if you have and, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.

While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, could be changed with several mouse clicks anytime. If you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
