In case you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same website, you could have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various ways to forward one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all 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, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be redirected to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes several basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the visitors should be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server plan we offer will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more knowledgeable users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
