When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main 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 these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized Internet sites under different country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very handy tool that will provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any of your domain names some other URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a range of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to change these settings whenever you want, and also to delete an active redirection from the same section in which you have created it from the start.
