Redirect

You can use the .htaccess file to redirect visitors to different files, either on the same website, or on a different site.

Redirect rules are written as below, starting with Redirect, then the location you are directing away from, then the location you are redirecting to.

Redirect /oldindex.php /newindex.php

You can redirect whole directories as well.

Redirect /olddirectory /newdirectory

And you can redirect to a different site.

Redirect /index.php http://othersite.com/newindex.php
