In case you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux web hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we will supply you with a user-friendly tool where you will simply have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with several clicks at any time. If you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as fast.
