If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same website, you could have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes several simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors have to be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you create a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to redirect any one of your domain addresses or subdomains, you can use the very useful redirection tool we've included with our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It will allow you to forward the traffic within seconds, because all you'll have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and enter the web address of the other website. The redirection shall take effect right away. In case you are more advanced, you shall be able to modify different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be modified for any current redirection too, so you'll not have to create a new one if you would like to edit something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
