    Hello,

    I have a problem getting htaccess to work.

    I had this

    Code:
    redirect / www.myaffiliatelink.com
    I saved that as .htaccess.txt and put that in one of my addon domains on public_html. I put it in my domain's folder and the cgi-bin. Nothing really happens. I thought the code didn't make any sense to me. I already redirected my link on cpanel. I just want to cloak/blank my link.

    I saw inside /public_html/mydomain.com<---(Addon domain) that had a .htaccess file, and the code looked something like this

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mydomain.com$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.mydomain.com$
    RewriteRule ^/?$ "My affiliate link" [R=301,L] 
    
    I searched the forum and saw alot of variations on this but it all seem to be different.

    If i had to change the code, would i change the .htaccess.txt or .htaccess on /public_html/mydomain.com

    Hmmmmmmmmmm, the file needs to be called .htaccess - not .htaccess.txt

    Now if you just want to redirect the entire domain your .htaccess contents should be:

    Code:
    Redirect 301 / http://www.linktoredirectto.com/

    of course your provider has to enable the required server modules. mod_rewrite for example. and then it need to be allowed in the virtualhost container: AllowOverride FileInfo
