If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of approaches to forward one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, 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 main website.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux website hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to forward any of your domains or subdomains, you can take advantage of the practical redirection tool that we have included with our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It shall enable you to forward the visitors within seconds, considering that all you will have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and input the Internet address of the other website. The redirection will take effect quickly. In case you are proficient, you'll be able to change different options, like the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options could be changed for any current redirection too, so you will not have to create a new one if you'd like to modify something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
