When you have a few domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of ways to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be redirected to the main site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is very simple - you must select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it has to be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users too, such as the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server package we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding particular content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool where you will just need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with a couple of clicks anytime. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
