When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux cloud web hosting
, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you start a semi-dedicated server
account with us and you want to forward any one of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the very useful redirection tool we have added to our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It shall enable you to redirect the website visitors within seconds, as all you will need to do is choose a domain/subdomain and enter the web address of the other site. The forwarding shall take effect instantly. In case you are more advanced, you shall be able to change different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options could be changed for any already present redirection as well, so you'll not need to create a new one if you want to edit something. You are able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
