When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to forward 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 rather simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be altered with just a few clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
