When you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are various methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package 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 is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our cloud website hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server package deal that we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with just a few mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
