When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same website, you may have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

We provide a convenient and incredibly simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so in case you have a shared hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if required. Any domain name or subdomain hosted inside the account can be redirected, so you will just need to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the main folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to type in the new web address, regardless if it's pointing to a different website inside your account or to an Internet site on a remote server. The forwarding will be enabled almost instantly. In case you are more experienced, you will have a number of advanced options to choose from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All of the redirections will be listed in exactly the same section, so whenever you do not require a specific one anymore, you'll be able to cancel it with a click.

All these options may be altered for any active redirection also, so you will not have to set up a new one if you want to change something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
