    Question cPanel Redirect from http://domain to http://www.domain

    I want to permanently redirect traffic from:

    http://domain.com

    to:

    http://www.domain.com

    within cPanel. I've tried adding the www within the url in the cPanel field, but the site drops. Anyone know how to do this or even if it's possible with cPanel? Thanks.

    try this

    Add the following code to your .htaccess file and clean your browser before testing it.

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride FileInfo
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]


    I don't know of anyway to do what you want using cpanel though.

    In cpanel click on Redirects.
    In the first box, type nothing.
    In the second box type the location of the other domain.
    Select Permanent in the dropdown box.
    Click Add.

    I hope this helps.

    If the web closed at midnight, what would YOU do?

    Is there a proper place to put these lines in the .htaccess file? If I put them under the other redirects such as

    Redirect permanent /directory/file.php

    I get a server error, I think it was the 500. Thanks.

    .htaccess

    Can you post the current working .htaccess file. The code I posted should come before any other redirects.

    RewriteEngine On
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride FileInfo
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    If you don't mind me asking, what purpose does this redirect serve, other than adding the www? Is it just asthetic?

    It's partly aesthetic, yeah, but also for uniformity.
