If you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are several methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the website visitors have to be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will get access to a handy tool, you can use to redirect any domain hosted inside the account with several mouse clicks. The tool is an element of the advanced Hepsia CP and may be used by both experienced users and rookies. If you have no previous experience, you'll be able to forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you are expert, you could also decide if the type of the redirection has to be permanent or temporary and if the method needs to be direct or match. Each of these options may be altered anytime as well as the URL, so you won't have to create a new redirection if you wish to adjust something. Of course, when you no longer require a given domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection with ease.
