If you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are different methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it'll 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 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 cannot do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux website hosting, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to select 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 could deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain names to another URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could select a range of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it to start with.
