If you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux cloud website hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package deal which we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will just need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, may be altered with just a few mouse clicks at any time. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
