When you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it'll 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 address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be redirected to the main website.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website 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 an alternative Internet address. The process takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the traffic should be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very convenient tool that will offer you an automated and easy way to forward any of your domains to another URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be enabled in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could pick a range of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it from the start.
