When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same website, you could have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our web hosting plans, provides a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, like the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool where you will just have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, 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, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be changed with a few mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
