In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are various approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of 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 could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The process takes just a few basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, if you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very convenient tool that will supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be activated within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could pick a variety of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, as well as to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it initially.
