If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting package, you will 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 Internet address. The task takes a few easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You will only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with a few clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
