In case you have a few domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you may have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different ways to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal which we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to choose 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 modified with just a few mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as quickly.
