DirectAdmin Site Redirection

DirectAdmin Site Redirection allows you to redirect 1 URL to another URL

To get started, login to the DirectAdmin User account

Once you are logged in, either type Site Redirection into the search bar of the DirectAdmin control panel or go to Account Manager > Site Redirection using the DirectAdmin menu.

If you have multiple domains hosted on a single DirectAdmin account, click on the domain name where you see Domain: yourdomain.com (your domain is a blue hyperlink located near the search field) to toggle between the domains to then manage your site redirects.

Once you are on the Site Redirection page, if you have multiple domains on this account, choose the domain you wish to redirect from the dropdown near the top middle area of your screen (to the left of the search bar shown above).

Next, click the button that says + Create New Redirect

Alternative Redirect Option

If you are only redirecting one domain to another and there are no email accounts, files, databases or other data associated with the domain, it’s easiest to just create the URL redirect(s) through the Evolve Web Hosting portal. To use this option, your domain(s) do have to be registered with us. If they are registered elsewhere, use the method above to create the redirect within DirectAdmin.
