When you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same website, you could have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of ways to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each 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 could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary Internet site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux cloud service, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside 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 should be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to choose 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 exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal that we offer will allow you to redirect 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 certain content to it, we shall give you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more knowledgeable users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with a couple of clicks anytime. When you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
