When you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you can have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we shall give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be modified with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
