cPanel Redirects

Redirects allow you to make a specific web page redirect to another page and display the contents of that page. This way you can make a page with a long URL accessible by a page which has a shorter and easier to remember URL.

To use a Redirect you need to login to your cPanel account.
Find the “Domains” section in cPanel and click on Redirect (See pic below, click on picture for larger version).

You are now presented with the add Redirect panel (See pic below, click on picture for larger version).

www. redirection: These options control wether you redirect with, without or both of the www subdomain.

Click on the Add button.
