When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package 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 address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared hosting plans, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is quite easy - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then input the URL it needs to be forwarded to. You can also redirect a particular subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you are able to redirect just the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the option to pick 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 could deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you start a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to forward any one of your domains or subdomains, you can use the very useful redirection tool that we have added to our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It'll enable you to forward the website visitors within seconds, as all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and input the Internet address of the other Internet site. The redirection shall take effect quickly. In case you are more advanced, you shall be able to edit different options, like the type of the redirection - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. All these options can be changed for any active redirection too, so you'll not need to set up a new one if you want to edit something. You may remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
