When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same site, you can have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different ways to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux web hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server offers feature a very handy tool that will provide you with an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a specific folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it in the first place.
