In case you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same website, you may have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various ways to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes a number of easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to select a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you don't need it anymore.

Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may pick a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to edit these settings at any time, and even to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it initially.
