When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same site, you may have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several methods to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be redirected to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes several basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will only have to select a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in case you don't require it anymore.
