When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are various methods to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to select a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the visitors have to be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very convenient tool that'll offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domains to another URL.

Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options too, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings anytime, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it initially.
