When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different approaches to forward one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package allows it, though, it will be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized sites under different country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the main site.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a 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 Internet address. The process takes several simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will only have to pick a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the visitors should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
