When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web 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 real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you will 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 another Internet address. This process takes several basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the visitors 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 forwarding you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server package which we provide will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more expert users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with a couple of clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
