When you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our shared hosting, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, including the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. 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 Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with just a few clicks anytime. If you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
