In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different methods to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to 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, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a few easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to select a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded 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 you set up could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a variety of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to change these settings at any time, and also to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it in the first place.
