When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are various approaches to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. As an example, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our web hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool that will allow you to redirect any domain address or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you have to choose a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it should be forwarded to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may redirect only the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users as well, like the option to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to disable it with a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated servers, you will get access to a helpful tool, which you can use to redirect any domain hosted in the account with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is a component of the advanced Hepsia CP and can be used by both expert users and beginners. If you have no previous experience, you can redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by inputting or pasting the remote URL. If you are experienced, you can also choose if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. These options could be altered anytime as well as the URL, so you will not need to create a new redirection if you want to adjust something. Naturally, if you no longer want a particular domain or subdomain to be redirected, you could delete the redirection without difficulty.
