In case you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are different ways to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may 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 instance, if you are building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the main site.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, supplied with our web hosting plans, includes a URL redirection tool which will allow you to forward any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account to any URL - in your account or a third-party one. Setting up a new redirection is very easy - you have to pick a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it should be redirected to. You could also forward a specific subfolder only. For example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you could forward only the latter. The tool has advanced features for more tech-savvy users also, such as the feature to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, etc. If you no longer need a redirection, you may deactivate it with a click from the same section of the Control Panel.
