When you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you may have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a web hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The procedure takes just a few simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only need to select a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the site visitors should be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server package which we provide will permit 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 specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool where you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more expert users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, may be altered with several mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
