Hello nilesh,

Thank you for your question regarding redirecting through .htaccess. Here is a link to our guide on how to redirect a domain without changing the URL. Be sure to read the "Stipulations" section.

If you are using a CMS (such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.) we recommend using a plugin for redirects, or setting this up in the dashboard/admin section instead. Since these also rely on .htaccess rules, adding custom rules can often interfere with the functionality.

Thank you,
John-Paul
