When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same website, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of approaches to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting plan allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of those things. For example, if you're building localized websites under several country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the main website.

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes several easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose 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 visitors have to be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.
