When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you can have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are different methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you'll 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 another web address. This process takes just a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be carried out manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. If you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
