In case you have a few domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several approaches to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server package 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 creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with a few clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
