In case you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of methods to redirect one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our hosting, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you must select a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option 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'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, may be modified with a few mouse clicks anytime. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as fast.
