Just log into the control panel, Go to Domains -> Manage Domains, then scroll to the bottom and click “Add a new domain.” The second option down is “Redirected.” Just fill in the domain you want to add, then right below it, the one you want it to redirect to.

Click “Redirect this domain now.” All done!

I have a related question…I have setup a phpBB forum at the following URL:

http://forums.shs89reunion.com

I recently had to rebuild it from scratch, and it is in a different directory now. If I type the above URL into the browser, it automatically redirects to the subdirectory phpBB2–which no longer exists! If I navigate directly to the index.php page, the forum works fine. How do I get rid of the previous redirect?

Thanks,
Matt

I take it that you already figured it out? That link works fine for me – no redirect.

Maybe clear your cache if you’re still having problems with it, but it seems to be fine.

Nope, I didn’t fix it…I’m just a moron who was under the impression that hitting the reload button actually reloaded the page from the server. Thanks for the help.

as an alternative you can send a header using php for instance.

create a file called index.php and place it in the root of your website… then use the following code:

<?php header("location:http://yourcoolnewdomain.com") ?>
