In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of ways to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes several easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.
