If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same website, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared hosting, features a URL forwarding tool that will enable you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is extremely easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a certain subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users also, such as 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 can deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, can be changed with several clicks at any time. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as quickly.
