If you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same Internet site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host each 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 can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud website hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes just a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors must be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not need it anymore.
