In case you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are various methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real 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 you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the main site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

We provide a handy and incredibly simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so if you have a website hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain name or subdomain hosted in the account could be forwarded, so you will simply have to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to type in the new web address, no matter whether it's pointing to a different website in your account or to a site on a remote web server. The forwarding shall be active almost instantaneously. If you are more skillful, you'll have a range of advanced options to choose from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All of the redirections shall be listed in the exact same section, so when you do not need a specific one anymore, you may cancel it with a click.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very convenient tool that'll offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be active in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings anytime, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it in the first place.
