When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same website, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a number of simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the visitors should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding certain content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with several mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as fast.
