When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host all 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, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized Internet sites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared plans, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is quite simple - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You may also redirect a specific subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced options for more tech-savvy users too, such as 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 require a redirection, you can deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.
