If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all 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, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared hosting packages, provides a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather simple - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a particular 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 options for more tech-savvy users as well, including the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated hosting, you shall get access to a useful tool, that you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is a component of the innovative Hepsia Control Panel and could be used by both expert users and novices. In case you have no previous experience, you could redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you're expert, you can even decide if the type of the redirection must be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. These options can be changed anytime along with the URL, so you shall not have to create a new redirection if you wish to change something. Naturally, when you no longer need a given domain or subdomain to be redirected, you could delete the redirection without difficulty.
