If you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are various methods to redirect one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary 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 many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under different country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes just a few basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors must be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.
