When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are several approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The procedure takes a few easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors should 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 redirection that you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you do not need it anymore.

All of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with several mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
