Redirect old domain to new

Sometimes you want to change an old domain to a new one, below you'll find how to do it.

First you log into your FTP account, and go to the root of your domain, if it's your primary domain this will usually be public_html, here you want to create (or edit) the file .htaccess (Remember there's a dot in front).

Here you put the following content:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

  RewriteEngine On

  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^myolddomain\.com$ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.myolddomain\.com$
  RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

</IfModule>
