How To Configure Redirects In cPanel

This article describes how to use cPanel to configure a web page to redirect to a different web page.


A redirection occurs when a web server redirects a visitor from one web page to another web page. A common use of redirection is to create shorter, easy-to-remember URLs that redirect to longer URLs. Another use is to redirect visitors from old pages on a web site to newer, updated web pages.

You can use cPanel to redirect multiple web pages or entire domains, and you can specify whether redirections are temporary or permanent.


To add a redirect, follow these steps:

  1. In the Domains section of the cPanel home screen, click Redirects.
  2. Under Add Redirect, select the redirection type:
  • To specify a permanent redirection, select Permanent (301).
  • To specify a temporary redirection, select Temporary (302).

Note: 301 and 302 refer to the HTTP status codes that the server sends to a web browser.

      3. Select the domain, and then type the web page that you want to redirect.
      4. In the redirects to text box, type the destination web page.

Note: You can redirect the web page to another web page on your web site, or to a web page on a completely different web site.

      5. Click Add.


You can remove a redirect when you no longer want to redirect a page to another web page. However, you cannot modify a redirect. If you need to modify a redirect, delete it and create a new one.

  1. To remove a redirect, follow these steps:
  2. In the Domains section of the cPanel home screen, click Redirects.
  3. Under Current Redirects, locate the redirect that you want to remove, and then click Remove.
  4. Click Remove Redirect to confirm the deletion.
