When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are various approaches to redirect one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our Linux cloud hosting service, provides a URL redirection tool which will allow you to redirect any domain or subdomain hosted in your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated features for more tech-savvy users also, like the possibility to select the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the CP.
