When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same site, you may have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it shall 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 address is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our Linux shared website hosting packages, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users as well, such as 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 require a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.

If you start a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you want to forward any of your domain names or subdomains, you can use the very useful redirection tool that we have incorporated with our custom Hepsia website hosting CP. It'll allow you to forward the traffic within seconds, as all you will need to do is choose a domain/subdomain and type the web address of the other Internet site. The forwarding shall take effect quickly. If you are experienced, you will be able to change different options, like the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options can be modified for any present redirection as well, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you want to edit something. You could remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
