If you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same website, you can have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are various methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan allows 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 is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared service, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the possibility 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 disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very convenient tool that will provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domains to another URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings anytime, and even to delete an active redirection from the same section in which you have created it in the first place.
