If you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the others. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes just a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors should be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create may be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you do not require it anymore.

Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may choose a variety of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).

You'll be able to change these settings at any time, and also to delete an active redirection from the same exact section in which you have created it to start with.
