If you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are various ways to redirect one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan allows it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real 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 cannot do any of these things. As an example, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the main site.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The task takes a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the website visitors have to be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.
