Question

Redirect one url to new website url.

Hi, I have a ghost cms website on a one-click setup droplet with a url eg: www.myname.com

I would like to redirect another url www.myothername.com to www.myname.com, so that when users click on www.myothername.com it redirects and changes to www.myname.com on the address bar.

Hi @caldenbasi,

Depending on what WebService you are using myothername.com can be redirected differently.

Let’s assume you are using Nginx. In the myothername.com’s Nginx config, you can add the following option right under the root directive:

rewrite ^ http://www.myname.com$request_uri? permanent;

If you are using Apache, you can create the following redirect in your .htaccess file of your root folder:

RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.myname.com/ [R=301,L]
