In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The procedure takes just a few basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server package deal we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with just a few mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
