If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same website, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of methods to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites with our company and you have a shared website hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The procedure takes several easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server package which we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with a few clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as quickly.
