When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you could have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are a number of methods to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized websites under various country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the main website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes a few easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to select a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.
