When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you can have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various ways to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan permits it, though, it will 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a number of basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the site visitors should be redirected 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 that you set up can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very handy tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domain names some other URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be activated within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you could choose a variety of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings anytime, and to delete an existing redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it to start with.
