When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are various approaches to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it will 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 may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be redirected to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux cloud hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to redirect any one of your domain names or subdomains, you can take advantage of the handy redirection tool that we have included with our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It'll allow you to forward the site visitors within seconds, because all you'll have to do is pick a domain/subdomain and type the web address of the other Internet site. The forwarding will take effect right away. If you are more advanced, you'll be able to modify different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options could be changed for any current redirection also, so you will not need to set up a new one if you would like to modify something. You could remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
