Adding a redirect from cPanel comes in handy if you need to change the way your domains lead to your pages. For example, if you started out with one page leading to one place and you wanted to change it to another, you would simply need to follow these steps.

How to Redirect Pages in cPanel

Start out by logging into your cPanel, scroll down to the Domains section and click on the icon marked Redirects.

Here you see two text boxes. With the first one (that has your domain name in front of it) you list your current page you wish to redirect. In the second text box enter the full URL of the destination for the redirect.

Now, in the Type: drop down box, you have two choices:

  • Temporary - a redirect you only wish to have for a temporary amount of time.
  • Permanent - a redirect you wish to keep forever.

Click the Add button when you are sure you have all the settings correct. Once you have done that, you will be taken to a web page which lets you know your redirect has been setup successfully.

To remove a redirect, on the Add Redirect web page scroll down to the Current Redirects section. Find the redirect you would like to delete, and click the red X to remove it.
