When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to forward one 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 all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can 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 sites under various country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared web hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes just a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected 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 that you create may be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any of your domain names some other URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a range of more advanced options as well, particularly 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 modify these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to begin with.
