If you have several domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of ways to forward one domain to another, including 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 set up 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, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also forward a particular subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you may disable it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to forward any of your domains or subdomains, you can benefit from the very useful redirection tool we've included with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It shall allow you to redirect the visitors within seconds, due to the fact that all you will have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and type in the Internet address of the other website. The redirection shall take effect instantly. If you are more advanced, you will be able to edit different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be modified for any present redirection as well, so you'll not need to create a new one if you'd like to edit something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
