Easy steps to create 301 Redirect

 2 min

301 redirect is a type of permanent redirect from one URL to another. 301 redirects users and search engines to a different URL than the one they have actually inserted in their browser.

# Creating a 301 Redirect Using .htaccess

1. Log in to Control Panel.

2. Go to .htaccess Editor.

3. Go to Direct Editor.

4. Click on Change to select in which directory you want to place the 301 redirects.

5. Add any one of the following given code snippets into your .htaccess file depending on the task that you want to perform :

1) Old to a new domain

RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC,OR]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]

RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L, R=301,NC]

It will Update “OLDDOMAIN” to the old domain that you want to redirect to and will update your “NEWDOMAIN” to the domain to which it is already redirecting.

2) Https Redirect :

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80

RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

It will Update the “DOMAIN” to the domain that requires the redirect from HTTP to HTTPS.

6. Click on Save.
