When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different methods to forward one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all 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 may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized websites under several country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a shared web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes just a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors should be redirected 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 which you create can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, if you don't require it anymore.

If you are more advanced, you will be able to modify different options, including the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options can be altered for any current redirection as well, so you will not have to create a new one if you would like to change something. You are able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
