If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the exact same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are various approaches to forward one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the main Internet site.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our Linux cloud website hosting packages, features a URL forwarding tool that will allow you to forward any domain name or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - within your account or a third-party one. Creating a new redirection is rather easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also redirect a certain subfolder only. As an illustration, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward just the latter. The tool has sophisticated options for more tech-savvy users too, like the option to choose the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so forth. If you no longer need a redirection, you are able to disable it with a mouse click from the same section of the CP.
