When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are different approaches to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up 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 various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes several easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, when you don't require it anymore.
