When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
Our company offers a handy and really simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so in case you have a cloud hosting account with our company, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account could be forwarded, so you will just need to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the primary folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to type in the new web address, no matter if it is pointing to a different website inside your account or to a site on a remote server. The forwarding shall be active almost immediately. In case you are more skillful, you'll have a variety of advanced options to pick from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All redirections will be listed in the very same section, so when you don't need a particular one anymore, you'll be able to cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, can be changed with a few clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
