If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different approaches to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal allows it, though, it will 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 is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized websites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you will 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 Internet address. The procedure takes several easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will simply need to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the site visitors should be redirected 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 set up could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
