When you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it will 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 is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized sites under several country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.

The procedure takes a few simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors have to be sent to.
