301 Redirect with htaccess

Support > Domain > Domain information

Sometimes it is necessary to set up a permanent redirect (301). We recommend storing this via a .htaccess file.

Follow these steps:

1. Open editor

Open Notepad or a similar text editor (in Windows: «Start – Run – "notepad" – OK»)

2. Content

Create a file with the following contents:

Redirect to domain with www

Redirect domain.com to www.domain.com

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.domain.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Copy the italicized text into your file and replace «domain.com» and «www.domain.com» with the desired domain name.

Redirect to domain without www

Redirect www.domain.com to domain.com

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Copy the italicized text into your file and replace «domain.com» and «www.domain.com» with the desired domain name.

3. Save .htacces file

Save the file with «File – Save As...». The filename should be «.htaccess», the file type should be «All Files». Be sure to save the file in «ANSI format».

Load now the «.htaccess» file via FTP into the ROOT-folder of the domain.
