Redirecting from an old domain to a new one

Posted November 17, 2016 1.3k views

I have a website here with the nameservers pointing to DO as well. I’ve bought a new domain and I want to redirect all requests from my old website to the new one with the status 302. I want to achieve that on a domain level or without having to buy a droplet only for redirects. How can I do that?

Below is the code that you should place in your .htaccess file on the old site:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain\.com$ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.olddomain\.com$
  RewriteRule (.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
