When you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are different ways to redirect one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package allows it, though, it shall 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a shared website hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a number of simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You will simply need to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in the event you don't require it anymore.
