When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are different methods to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main 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, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes just a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very useful tool which will supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domains some other URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may select a range of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it initially.
