If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are different ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our cloud hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you must pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option 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 are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to select 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 will be fully active. The more advanced users can also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with several mouse clicks whenever you want. If you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
