If you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same website, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are various approaches to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
We offer a convenient and very simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so if you have a shared website hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain or subdomain hosted inside the account could be redirected, so you will simply have to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the primary folder or a subfolder will be redirected and to input the new Internet address, no matter if it is pointing to a different site in your account or to a website on a remote hosting server. The forwarding will be active almost immediately. In case you are more experienced, you'll have a range of advanced options to choose from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All of the redirections will be listed in the same section, so whenever you do not need a certain one anymore, you may cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be activated within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it from the start.
