Redirect

Problem:

How do I create a redirect?

Solution:

The Redirects tool will allow you to redirect your domain names.

     

  1. Login to your cPanel Account.
  2.  

  3. Click the Redirects icon, in the Domains section of the cPanel.
  4.  

     

  5. From the Type menu you will need to choose which type of redirect to use.
    • Permanent 301: A 301 redirect will update the visitors bookmarks and direct search engines to the new site.
    •  

    • Temporary 302: A 302 redirect will redirect the visitor or search engine, but will not update the bookmark and the search engine will continue to index to the original page.
    •  

     

  6. Choose your domain name you would like to redirect, using the drop-down menu.
  7.  

  8. If you would like to redirect a single page or directory; you can use the text field following the drop-down menu to enter the name of the folder or file.
  9.  

  10. Enter the full URL of the page you will be redirecting to in the "redirects to ->" text field.
    Note: You need to enter the protocol as well, e.g. http://, https:// or ftp://
  11.  

  12. Select if you will be redirecting www. or not.
    • "Only redirect with www."This option will only redirect visitors that use www. as part of the URL
    • "Redirect with or without www."This option will redirect all visitors.
    • "Do Not Redirect www."This option will not redirect visitors that use www. as part of the URL

     

  13. Click the "Wild Card Redirect' if you would like to redirect to the same file on the new destination.

    Example: www.example.com redirects to www.example-destination.com

    • With "Wild Card Redirect": www.example.com/about.html will redirect to www.example-destination.com/about.html
    • Without "Wild Card Redirect": www.example.com/about.html will redirect to www.example-destination.com

     

     

  14. Click the "Add" button to create the redirect.
