If you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several methods to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits 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 name is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud hosting plans, features a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is rather easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also forward a specific subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the possibility 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 could disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very useful tool that will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domains to another URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be active in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may select a range of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it to start with.
