When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes several basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to select a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the website visitors should be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very useful tool that will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domains to another URL. While this is normally done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be active in just seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could pick a number of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect 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 existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it in the first place.
