In cPanel, you’re able to set up any necessary redirects through a simple submission form. Head to your cPanel account, Home > Domains section and locate Redirects.
Follow these instructions to complete the form and properly setup a domain redirect to your primary domain (please review image below for guidance):
Step 1: Select Permanent (301)
Step 2: Select the domain you want redirected from the **All Public Domains** dropdown
Step 3: Enter the URL you wish to send the user to in the Redirects to text box
Step 4: In the www.redirection: choices section choose one of the options
b. Redirect with or without www. – This option is universal, no matter how the user enters the URL they will be redirected to the new website
c. Do Not Redirect www. – If the user enters www then they will not be sent to the new website, only without the prefix will they be moved
Step 5: Click the Add button
This will update your .htaccess file within cPanel >> File Manager for redirecting.
