When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are different approaches to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package allows 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 name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under different country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux shared hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will get access to a useful tool, you can use to forward any domain hosted inside the account with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is a component of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and could be used by both proficient users and rookies. If you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing or pasting the remote URL. If you're experienced, you can also choose if the type of the redirection has to be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. All of these options can be changed whenever you want as well as the URL, so you won't have to create a new redirection if you would like to modify something. Of course, if you no longer need a given domain or subdomain to be redirected, you can delete the redirection without any difficulty.
