In case you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you could have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are various methods to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall 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 address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes several basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the site visitors should be forwarded 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 you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very handy tool that'll offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is normally done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a range of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it initially.
