When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are various approaches to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the main site.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux website hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose 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 mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more experienced users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, can be modified with a couple of clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as quickly.
