When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of approaches to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people shall be forwarded to the primary Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The task takes a few basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
