If you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are various methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the main site.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our web hosting plans, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the possibility to choose 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 very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you shall get access to a useful tool, which you can use to forward any domain hosted in the account with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is a component of the sophisticated Hepsia CP and can be used by both expert users and novices. In case that you have no previous experience, you can redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you are more advanced, you can even choose if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method must be direct or match. All of these options may be altered at any time as well as the URL, so you shall not need to create a new redirection if you wish to adjust something. Naturally, when you no longer require a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you could delete the redirection with ease.
