When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an example, if you are building localized websites under different country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a few easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the traffic should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you do not require it anymore.
