When you have several domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are different approaches to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan allows it, though, it will 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 name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux shared web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it needs to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you could disable it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you open a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you want to redirect any of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the handy redirection tool we've incorporated with our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It shall permit you to forward the visitors within seconds, because all you'll have to do is choose a domain/subdomain and type the Internet address of the other website. The forwarding will take effect almost immediately. In case you are proficient, you will be able to edit different options, such as the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any active redirection too, so you will not have to create a new one if you'd like to change something. You'll be able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
