How to redirect to another page within the same domain using Apache

I have a client and a server set up on separate droplets, both using Apache. I have a DNS resource record set up so the client can be accessed with instead of its IP. But to connect it to the server, the URL still needs to be[serverip]:[serverport], which is messy and impossible to remember.

How can I make it so that redirects to that full URL? Or alternatively, make into an alias for the full URL?

Figured it out. Put this line in the client’s .htaccess file:

RedirectMatch "^/([A-Za-z0-9-]+)$ "/?~~[serverip]:[serverport]"
