When you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same website, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting plan allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
We offer a convenient and really simple-to-use tool for creating a URL forwarding, so if you have a cloud hosting account with us, you can benefit from it, if required. Any domain address or subdomain hosted in the account may be forwarded, so you'll only have to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to choose if the main folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to enter the new web address, regardless of whether it is pointing to a different website inside your account or to a website on a remote server. The forwarding shall be activated almost immediately. In case you are more knowledgeable, you'll have a number of advanced options to pick from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All the redirections shall be listed in the exact same section, so when you don't require a specific one anymore, you'll be able to cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server package which we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more advanced users can also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with a couple of clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
