When you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same website, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are various ways to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all 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 may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux shared hosting packages, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, including the feature to choose 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 can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very useful tool that will provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domain names to a different URL. While this is typically done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a variety of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to change these settings at any time, and to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to begin with.
