When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan allows it, though, it'll 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, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes just a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will only have to pick a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the site visitors must be sent 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 set up can be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in case you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very handy tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is normally done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may pick a range of more advanced options too, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to begin with.
