When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are different approaches to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting plans, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users too, including the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a click from the same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages feature a very convenient tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domain names some other URL. While this is usually done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you may pick a range of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it to start with.
