A URL Redirector is one of the most useful software tools for your sites. Find out more about it and URL redirection.
When you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same site, you may have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the others. There are different approaches to forward one domain to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of 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, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an illustration, if you are building localized sites under various country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary site.
