When you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same website, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the main website.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared web hosting, provides a URL redirection tool that will enable you to forward any domain address or subdomain hosted within your account to any URL - inside your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be redirected to. You may also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could redirect only the latter. The tool has advanced functions for more tech-savvy users as well, such as the feature to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer require a redirection, you can disable it with a click from the exact same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more experienced users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and even the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
