When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you may have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, including the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you can disable it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we'll supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users can also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with a couple of mouse clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
