When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are different methods to forward one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud web hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely uncomplicated - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be forwarded to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you'll be able to forward only the latter. The tool has complex options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you could disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

In case that you have no previous experience, you'll be able to forward a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing in or pasting the remote URL. If you're more advanced, you can also decide if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method should be direct or match. These options may be modified at any time as well as the URL, so you will not have to create a new redirection if you wish to change something. Of course, when you no longer require a specific domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you are able to delete the redirection with ease.
