    Try putting the following code in the "public_html" directory in a file called ".htaccess"

    Code:
    ReDirect /folder/any-thing-here http://website.com/folder

    IF you are using cPanel/WHM you can do a redirect within cPanel.

    Code:
    RewriteRule ^/folder/(.+)$ http://website.com/folder
    Something like that should work.

    Lookup htaccess redirects - there are different types, depending on your SEO needs, so proceed with caution here. The suggestions listed above will certainly work, but make sure you know how they work before implementing them.

    If you can do that or that is not working trough htacces file I suppose that would be good idea to get in touch with your web hosting service provider nd ask to have that done on the server side. Good luck

    Do you want to "mask" URLs, or do you want to make simple redirects? If it's 2nd option, just click Redirects icon in cPanel - it's the easiest way to get this job done.

    Try configuring it in your control panel. If your control panel has that function it will automatically write necessary lines to the .htaccess file.

    With cPanel is that simple... Add therewrite rule and you are on the go.

    I would suggest doing it this way. The 301 makes it search engine friendly.
