When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same website, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are various methods to redirect one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create 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, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized websites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the main site.

When you host your sites with us and you have a website 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 a different web address. The task takes a number of easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.
