When you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host each 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 cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the main site.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared web hosting, provides a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users also, including the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server package that we provide will enable 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 adding certain content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with a couple of mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
