When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same website, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several ways to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, 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, including the possibility to select 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be modified with several mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
