When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are various ways to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a web hosting package deal, you will 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 another web address. The process takes a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not need it anymore.
