You can do that via the Web Server configuration files.

If using Apache, you would need to add this to your configuration setup:


If using Nginx, you would need to add this to your configuration setup:


Please remember you would need to restart the Web Server after making such changes. For more information on setting that up, you might want to read our guides on Setting up Apache VirtualHosts and Setting up Nginx Server Blocks.

Also please note if you are using a CMS, such as WordPress or Magento, you would need to edit the database entries that determine the site/home URLs. You can normally do this via the CMS admin panel, or directly via MySQL.

Hope it helps!

The Apache web server is the most popular way to serve web content on the internet. Apache has the ability to serve multiple domains from a single server by using a mechanism called "virtual hosts". If a virtual host is configured correctly for each domain, the web server can correctly route traffic to the appropriate files based on the domain name requested. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to configure Apache virtual hosts on an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS.

With NGINX, you can edit nginx configuration file
add this code
server {
listen 80;
301 redirect$request
