In case you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are a number of methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package 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 real difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be redirected to the main site.

When you host your sites with our company and you have a shared web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes a number of simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic should be sent to. For more knowledgeable 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 can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.
