If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various ways to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes several basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, if you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more expert users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with just a few mouse clicks at any time. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
