In case you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different methods to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes a number of simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors have to be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in the event you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you start a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to redirect any one of your domains or subdomains, you can take advantage of the convenient redirection tool that we have incorporated with our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It'll allow you to redirect the visitors within seconds, since all you will need to do is choose a domain/subdomain and type in the web address of the other site. The redirection will take effect quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you'll be able to edit different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any current redirection as well, so you will not have to create a new one if you'd like to modify something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
