When you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are different methods to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Hosting

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

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server package deal we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users can also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with a few clicks whenever you want. If you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
