Redirect Domains – cPanel

Learn How to Redirect Domains in cPanel. The Redirects interface sends all visitors of a domain or particular page to a different URL. 

There may be times when you need to redirect traffic from one domain to another. For example, you may need to route all traffic from yourdomain.com to yourdomain.net. You can also redirect specific pages, such as yourdomain.com/news.html to yourdomain.net/blog.html.
