When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to forward one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
We provide a handy and very simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so if you have a shared website hosting account with our company, you can benefit from it, if required. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account can be redirected, so you will just need to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to input the new web address, no matter whether it's pointing to a different Internet in your account or to a site on a remote server. The redirection shall be activated almost immediately. If you are more competent, you'll have a variety of advanced options to pick from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All redirections shall be listed in the very same section, so when you don't require a certain one anymore, you can cancel it with a click.
