    Exclamation how to redirect users from one domain to another?

    Hi All

    I have purchased 2 domains a .co.uk and a .com i've uploaded my site to the .co.uk domain and instead of uploading it again to the .com domain i thought it were better to forward the users who visited the .com site to the .co.uk one automatically.

    is this possible and if so how would i go about doing it, htaccess?

    many thanks

    yes it can be done infact I am doing that with my original domain. Its called domain forwarding.

    easiest thing to do would be look at the help section of your provider for advice..

    The process is fairly simple but since you don't mention a hosting provider I don't know the specifics.

    If you don't have expertise to do this, you can submit a ticket to your hosting company to setting up this applications. Also, you can setting up when you buy that domain. Its easy to do.

    Look up “htaccess 301 redirect” on the internet, there are numerous sites explaining how to do it. Also, you might find something on this forum in the Apache section.
