When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host all 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 may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be redirected to the main website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our cloud hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users as well, including 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 need a redirection, you may disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.
