If you have several domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several methods to redirect one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes just a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors should be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
