If you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create 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, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux web hosting packages, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you could deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domain names to another URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may select a variety of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section where you have created it from the start.
