There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP, you'll be able to forward each of your domains and subdomains no matter the Linux cloud website hosting you have chosen. With simply a couple of mouse clicks, you can easily set up a new redirection even if you have not used a website hosting account before, as our tool is very user-friendly. For a standard forwarding, you will only need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to enter the new URL, and then to save the change. The more advanced users can edit other options too - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection will be active (the main domain folder or a specific subfolder). Any forwarding that you have created can be deleted with only a mouse click anytime.
