In case you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various methods to forward one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a shared hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The procedure takes a number of basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors have to be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create may be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including particular content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, may be altered with several mouse clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
