In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same site, you may have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of methods to redirect one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The task takes a number of basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the traffic must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, if you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very useful tool that'll supply you with an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domains some other URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file within 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 enter the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be enabled in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a range of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it from the start.
