In case you have several domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same website, you could have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are several methods to forward one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes just a few basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors must be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in case you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very handy tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active in just seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could pick a range of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it in the first place.
