When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes several easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain or a subdomain via 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 to which the website visitors must be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package deal which we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more expert users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with just a few clicks anytime. If you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
