If you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal permits it, though, it will 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 may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our hosting services, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, including the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable 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 redirection shall be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a variety of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to start with.
