In case you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several ways to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal 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 address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes just a few easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the website visitors must 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 forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in the event you do not require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal which we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding certain content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to select 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 shall be 100% active. The more expert users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with a couple of clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as quickly.
