This document will explain how to create a .htaccess file to redirect your site or site content. This will not redirect any emails for your domains.
  1. Create an empty text file using a text editor such as notepad, and save it as htaccess.txt.[/*]
  2. If using a text editor, be sure to save the file as plain text.[/*]
  3. Edit the contents of the file. Check the following examples:[/*]
Point an entire site to a different URL, such as domain.net redirected to domain.com:
Code:
# This allows you to redirect your entire website to any other domain Redirect 301 / http://example.com/
Redirect index.html to a specific subfolder:
Code:
# This allows you to redirect index.html to a specific subfolder Redirect /index.html http://example.com/newdirectory/
Redirect an old file to a new file path:
Code:
# Redirect old file path to new file path Redirect /olddirectory/oldfile.html http://example.com/newdirectory/newfile.html
Redirect to a specific index page:
Code:
# Provide Specific Index Page (Set the default handler) DirectoryIndex index.html
