When you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host all 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 could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our Linux cloud service, provides a URL redirection tool that will permit you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is incredibly simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to forward just the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users too, like the feature to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated servers, you'll get access to an efficient tool, which you can use to redirect any domain hosted within the account with a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the advanced Hepsia CP and can easily be used by both advanced users and rookies. In case you have no previous experience, you can forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by entering or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you can even choose if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. All of these options could be altered at any time along with the URL, so you will not need to set up a new redirection if you want to adjust something. Of course, when you no longer require a particular domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you could delete the redirection with ease.
