When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are various approaches to forward one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package allows it, though, it will 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 can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a web hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The task takes just a few easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the traffic should 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 could be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.
