If you have several domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you may have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are several approaches to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux hosting services, includes a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. As an example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the exact same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very useful tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be active in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can pick a variety of more advanced options also, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings at any time, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it to start with.
