In case you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same website, you may have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are different ways to forward one Internet 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 of 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 could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

If you host your sites with our company and you have a hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes a few simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the visitors must be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.
