    easy.. just go to your domain control panel and select the redirect link or forward domain and put in the affiliate link you want to redirect to.

    or if you having hosting do this...Login to Cpanel > Redirects > setup 301 redirect, fill in the blanks. That's all.

    Easier just to do it through your domain panel....

    Just be aware that some affiliate terms forbid this and therefore won't provide a payout.

    Go in to FTP, create a file called index.php

    Put this in the file:

    PHP:
    <?php
    $url 
    ""//Put the link to your aff in the quotations
    header("Location: " $url);
    exit();
    ?>

    Thank you guys!
    Just entered the new url in the control panel, there were a space to fill in the url I wanted to redirect to.
    I thought it was more complicated.

    Use brad's URL redirector, that will work without breaking any affiliate tos.

    Use a php redirect.

    create a file called index.php and use the code below

    <?php
    header("location: YOUR AFFILIATE LINK HERE");
    ?>

    ftp the index.php to the root of your domain

    Is it better to do this in control panel, or in the domain registrar?

    How much traffic can you redirect this way? Could you redirect 20k-50k an hour?

    Europe, sometimes.
    Everyone who visits the page will be redirected, 1 or 1 million.

    So if you send 1million people to redirect through a bit.ly URL, they will not stop this or curb this in any way?

    If this is true it's fantastic.

    I think doing in Domain CPanel would be good.
    If hosting server is down,then ?
