In case you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same website, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several ways to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud website hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The process takes just a few basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors have to be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal that we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to pick 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 modified with a few clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
