When you have several domain names with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are different ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up 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, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the primary website.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes just a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors have to be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, if you don't need it anymore.
