When you have several 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 forward all the rest. There are different approaches to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

We offer a convenient and incredibly simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL redirection, so if you have a cloud hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account could be forwarded, so you will simply have to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to type in the new web address, regardless of whether it is pointing to a different website within your account or to a site on a remote web server. The forwarding will be active almost immediately. If you're more competent, you'll have a number of advanced options to pick from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All the redirections will be listed in the same section, so in case you do not require a specific one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a mouse click.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very handy tool that'll supply you with an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you may choose a number of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it from the start.
