When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same website, you can have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are different approaches to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package permits it, though, it shall 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 may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized websites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

We provide a handy and really simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so if you have a hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account can be redirected, so you'll only have to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the primary folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to input the new Internet address, no matter whether it's pointing to a different site inside your account or to a site on a remote server. The forwarding will be enabled almost immediately. In case you are more experienced, you will have a variety of advanced options to select from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth. All of the redirections will be listed in exactly the same section, so if you do not need a certain one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a click.

Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a range of more advanced options also, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
