In case you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same website, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are several methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized websites under different country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite uncomplicated - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility 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 need a redirection, you can disable it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

The forwarding shall take effect very quickly. In case you are knowledgeable, you'll be able to change different options, like the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be modified for any already present redirection as well, so you'll not have to create a new one if you wish to edit something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
