When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are various ways to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very useful tool that will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content within it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the needed remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you can choose a range of more advanced options too, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, as well as to delete an active redirection from the exact same section in which you have created it in the first place.
