In case you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are different ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting plan permits 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 name is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux web hosting, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very convenient tool that will supply you with an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file within 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 input the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may choose a range of more advanced options too, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings at any time, and to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it from the start.
