In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain address 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 could create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors must be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server package deal which we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with a few mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
