In case you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same Internet site, you could have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are various methods to forward one domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary site.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very convenient tool that will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domains to another URL. While this is in most cases done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled in just seconds.
