If you have several domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users also, like the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you create a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to forward any one of your domain names or subdomains, you can take advantage of the convenient redirection tool we have included with our custom Hepsia hosting CP. It will enable you to redirect the traffic within seconds, since all you'll have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and enter the web address of the other Internet site. The redirection shall take effect very quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you shall be able to change different options, such as the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any already present redirection as well, so you will not have to set up a new one if you'd like to modify something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
