When you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the same Internet site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are various methods to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be redirected to the primary site.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes just a few easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will only have to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the site visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose 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 Control Panel, in the event you don't require it anymore.
