If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several ways to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll 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 address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared website hosting packages, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very convenient tool that will supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domains to a different URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a range of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it from the start.
