If you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are different approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux cloud website hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users also, 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 deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very handy tool that'll offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the preferred remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be active in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a range of more advanced options too, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings anytime, and to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it in the first place.
