At times, you may want to re-direct traffic from one domain to another domain. This can be done at the domain level or for specific web pages. For example, domain.com and it's web traffic can be redirected to anotherdomain.com OR domain.com/aboutus.html can be redirected to anotherdomain.com/about.html

In this guide we will show you how to create a redirect in your cPanel.

How to Setup a Redirect

  1. Login to cPanel.
  2. Under the domains section select the Redirects icon.
    redirect1_copy
  3. On the next screen, fill in the boxes as needed and click the add button.
    2redirect

Hello Mujahid,

I am unfamiliar with the error. I could not locate any information on it using Google. I tried to go to the domain that you said redirected but it did not work. If you could provide the full error text or give examples as to how to duplicate it, that may be helpful.

Kindest Regards,

How do  I point my sub-domain to new URL instead of redirecting it. I believe both are different things

Hello Shahed,

When you point any URL to another, it is a redirect. You would just use the same instructions as above.

So Redirecting to URL as shown in article above,  and pointing using an A-record or CNAME are both basically the same things.  Thanks for clarifying
