When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are several ways to forward one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up 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, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our shared web hosting plans, includes a URL forwarding tool which will allow you to redirect any domain name or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is extremely easy - you have to select a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, like the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a mouse click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you order any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you will get access to a handy tool, that you can use to forward any domain hosted in the account with just a few clicks. The tool is an element of the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel and may be used by both advanced users and rookies. In case you have no previous experience, you can redirect a domain or a subdomain by selecting it and then by typing in or pasting the remote URL. If you're expert, you could also choose if the type of the redirection needs to be permanent or temporary and if the method has to be direct or match. Each of these options can be altered whenever you want as well as the URL, so you shall not have to set up a new redirection if you'd like to adjust something. Of course, when you no longer need a given domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you'll be able to delete the redirection without any difficulty.
