When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could 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 those things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, included with our Linux cloud service, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you may disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very useful tool that will provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be active in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a variety of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings whenever you want, as well as to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it initially.
