If you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same website, you can have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared hosting packages, provides a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect 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 extremely easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to choose 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 exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal which we provide will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, can be altered with a few clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
