If you have several domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same website, you may have the website under one of them and forward the others. There are various ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the main website.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our cloud web hosting, features a URL redirection 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. Creating a new redirection is rather uncomplicated - you need to pick a domain/subdomain and then type in the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a certain subfolder only. For instance, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has sophisticated functions for more tech-savvy users too, like the possibility to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer require a redirection, you could deactivate it with a click from the very same section of the CP.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you start a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you want to forward any of your domains or subdomains, you can take advantage of the practical redirection tool that we have included with our custom Hepsia website hosting CP. It will enable you to forward the site visitors within seconds, as all you will need to do is select a domain/subdomain and enter the Internet address of the other website. The redirection shall take effect right away. In case you are more advanced, you'll be able to modify different options, including the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options could be modified for any active redirection also, so you'll not have to set up a new one if you wish to modify something. You are able to remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
