If you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several approaches to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Hosting
When you host your websites with our company and you have a hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The task takes just a few easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be changed with several clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
