When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same website, you could have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are various approaches to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared plans, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be redirected to. You may also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated plans, you shall get access to a useful tool, that you can use to forward any domain hosted within the account with a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the sophisticated Hepsia CP and can be used by both experienced users and beginners. In case you have no previous experience, you can redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you could also decide if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method must be direct or match. Each of these options could be changed anytime along with the URL, so you will not have to create a new redirection if you would like to change something. Needless to say, if you no longer need a specific domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you can delete the redirection with ease.
