When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same website, you may have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows 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 address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes several easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domains some other URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you can select a variety of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings anytime, and also to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it from the start.
