In case you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you could have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Hosting

If you host your sites with our company and you have a hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the site visitors must be forwarded 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 that you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in the event you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal that we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be modified with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
