When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal allows it, though, it will 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 name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized Internet sites under different country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a few easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain address or a subdomain using 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 website visitors should 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 redirection which you create may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.
