If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are different methods to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes a number of easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the visitors have to be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.

In case you are more advanced, you shall be able to edit 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 current redirection as well, so you'll not need to create a new one if you wish to modify something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
