How to Create a Domain/URL Redirect

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 be redirected to yourdomain1.com/aboutus.html

Here are the steps to Redirect your Domain in cPanel:

Step 1:

Login to cPanel.

Step 2:

Go under “Domains” and click on “Redirects”.
