In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you may have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are different ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it'll 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 name is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our Linux website hosting, features a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very uncomplicated - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also forward a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have and, you may redirect just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to pick 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'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.
