When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same website, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are various ways to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan allows it, though, it'll 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 is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a number of simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose 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 type the URL where the site visitors must be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very handy tool which will provide you with an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domains some other URL. While this is usually done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be active in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you could pick a variety of more advanced options too, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and also to delete an active redirection from the very same section where you have created it to start with.
