If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are various approaches to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of 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 could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a website hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The process takes just a few basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors have to be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server package we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with a couple of mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
