When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your website 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

We provide a convenient and incredibly simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so if you have a shared web hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain or subdomain hosted within the account could be forwarded, so you will only need to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the primary folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to type the new web address, regardless of whether it is pointing to a different Internet inside your account or to a website on a remote server. The forwarding will be active almost instantly. If you're more experienced, you'll have a number of advanced options to choose from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth. All of the redirections shall be listed in exactly the same section, so if you don't require a specific one anymore, you can cancel it with a click.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very useful tool that'll offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domain names some other URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be activated in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a variety of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to change these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the same exact section where you have created it to start with.
