If you have several domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same website, you could have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of methods to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly uncomplicated - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package that we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more expert users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with a couple of clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
