About Htaccess Redirect Generator

A .htaccess file is a directory-level configuration file supported by several web servers, used for configuration of website-access issues, such as URL redirection, etc. For example, you have an index page on your website and you request an unknown page then your apache server redirects you to your index page because by default in apache’s configuration file it is redirected to the index file. However, you can generate your own .htaccess file to redirect to any page on your website in case of any error, file not found, etc. Similarly, Using Redirect in a .htaccess file enables you to redirect users from an old page to a new page without having to keep the old page. For example, if you use index.html as your index file and then later rename index.html to home.html, you could set up a redirect to send users from index.html to home.html. There is another option in this tool that is www to non-www and vice versa. By default, your website can be accessed with both www.anything.com and anything.com. Since Google penalizes this due to duplicated content reasons, you should restrict the access to either www.anything.com or anything.com. Now what this tool does for you is very important, let us understand this with two examples.

Example no 1:

RewriteEngine On

            RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.anything.com$ [NC]

            RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.anything.com/$1 [L,R=301]

Example no 2:

RewriteEngine on

            RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.anything\.com$

            RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/ anything\.com\/" [R=301,L]

Example 1 is redirecting code for non-www to www, whereas example 2 is redirecting code for www to non-www, this tool generates these codes for you and you can easily copy generated code and use it.
