In case you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same website, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting plan permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes a few simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain address 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 type in the URL where the website visitors have to be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
