There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often 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 can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have and, you can forward just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, including 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'll be able to disable it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active in just seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to edit these settings anytime, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it to begin with.
