When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are different methods to forward one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package allows it, though, it'll 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 is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our website hosting, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, if 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 as well, such as the option to choose 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 could disable it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more advanced 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). These options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with just a few clicks anytime. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
