Precisely what is a URL Redirector and exactly how does URL redirection function?
In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward all the rest. There are a number of ways to forward one domain name to another, like 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 set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. As an illustration, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
With the point-and-click redirection tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to redirect all of your domain addresses and subdomains whatever the website hosting
you have selected. With only a few mouse clicks, you can set up a new redirection even if you never used a web hosting account before, because our tool is really easy-to-use. For a standard redirection, you'll simply need to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to type in the new URL, and then to save the change. The more advanced users can modify other options too - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this forwarding will be active (the main domain folder or a particular subfolder). Any forwarding which you have created can be deleted with just a click anytime.
