If you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different methods to forward one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes just a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors have to be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you do not need it anymore.
