There are several reasons that give you the need to redirect a Domain. And the need often arises when a company starts to grow bigger, and realizes that it needs another brand.
A domain redirect can be easily set up in cPanel. For example, yourdomain1.com web traffic can be redirected to yourdomain2.com.
At the same time, yourdomain1.com/about.html can also redirected to yourdomain1.com/aboutus.html
Here are the steps to Redirect your Domain in cPanel.
Login to cPanel.
Go under “Domains” and click on “Redirects”.
Click on drop-down box for “Type” and choose if you want to create a Permanent (301), or Temporary (302) redirect.
Select the domain you wish to redirect.
Fill in the box beside slash ‘/’ for the folder names you are currently using. You may leave it blank if you wish to redirect the original domain name.
Choose default – “Redirect with or without www.”
Check the box if you wish to create a Wild Card Redirect. This will add the the same folder name after the URL when it redirects. For example, yourdomain1.com/test.php would redirect to yourdomain2.com/test.php.
You are ready to go when you see the message below.
