If you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our cloud web hosting, includes a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it should be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. For instance, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward only the latter. The tool has complex features for more tech-savvy users as well, 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 need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

If you are expert, you can also decide if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. All of these options can be modified whenever you want as well as the URL, so you shall not have to create a new redirection if you'd like to change something. Naturally, if you no longer need a certain domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection effortlessly.
