When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same website, you can have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are several ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the primary site.

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The process takes several simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors should be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very useful tool that'll supply you with an automated and easy way to forward any of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may choose a variety of more advanced options also, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the very same section where you have created it to begin with.
