How to properly code a 301 redirect for sub-domains.

  • How should I code a 301 redirect for sub-domains when...

    1. redirecting to a different sub-domain?
      Example: http://business.townport.org/list
      redirected to: http://newtown.portmaster.com/list/
    2. redirecting the sub-domain to the main domain?
      Example: http://business.townport.org/news/
      redirected to: https://townmaster.org/events/

Answer:

#1: Assuming you want everything within http://business.townport.org/list to be redirected to the same file names and directory structured at http://newtown.portmaster.com/list/, you should add this code to your .htaccess file on the http://business.townport.org/ server:

RewriteRule ^list/(.*)$ http://newtown.portmaster.com/list/$1 [R=301,NC,L]

#2: To redirect the sub-domain to the main domain, add this redirect code to your .htaccess file also on the http://business.townport.org/ server

RewriteRule ^news/(.*)$ https://townmaster.org/events/$1 [R=301,NC,L]

That should do it.SEN article end
