How to Make Nginx Redirect .com to .org domain

I own two domains and I am trying to make the .com requests redirect to the .org website. So, if a user visits mydomain.com, I want Nginx to redirect them to mydomain.org and to serve that domains html file as defined in the server block. How do I do this?

Also, I am using Let’s Encrypt to enable HTTPS on each page, would I need to get a certificate for the .com domain or just the .org domain as that’s really the only one I am serving?

Thanks!

Hi @ajdlc,

You should be able to use the following in your server block for your mydomain.com

server {
  server_name mydomain.com;
  rewrite ^ http://www.mydomain.org$request_uri? permanent;
}

This needs to be added to the Nginx conf of the domain you wish to be redirected from.
