When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are various methods to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package allows it, though, it shall 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 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. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared website hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be forwarded to. You can also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very useful tool that will provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be active in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to change these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it from the start.
