If you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same website, you may have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The 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 on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our cloud web hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will permit you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, like the possibility to choose 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 may deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package which we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including particular content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more expert users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with several mouse clicks anytime. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
