When you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it'll 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, create subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be forwarded to the primary website.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes several easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the website visitors should 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 redirection you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in the event you don't need it anymore.
