If you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are various ways to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan permits it, though, it shall 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 address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The procedure takes several simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you don't require it anymore.
