When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are different methods to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting services, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server offers include a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you can choose a number of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it to start with.
