If you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same site, you may have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The task takes just a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the website visitors should be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more expert users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, can be modified with a couple of mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
