htaccess Wildcard redirect from subdomain to subdomain

I wanted to redirect a subdomain ( websites.bizanosa.com) to another subdomain (p.bizanosa.com) . I searched online for a direct solution but didn’t find one.

Eventually, trying out different options I was able to mashup some results I found online to give me the following. And it works for me.

If you are in the same boat , you can try it and see if it works for you .

 

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^websites\.bizanosa\.com [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.websites\.bizanosa.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://p.bizanosa.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

 

My subdomains are websites.bizanosa.com  and p.bizanosa.com .  Replace them with yours .

This part…

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^websites\.bizanosa\.com [NC,OR]

Redirects  the subdomain,  websites.bizanosa.com  that has no www .

And this part

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.websites\.bizanosa.com [NC]

Redirects  the subdomain,  www.websites.bizanosa.com  that has  www .

 

And everything gets redirected to   p.bizanosa.com

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://p.bizanosa.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

 

Note :

  1. This is a WildCard redirect . It will redirect every link from website.bizanosa.com .
  2. To redirect from a domain to a domain .You can use the same code by removing the subdomain parts.

 

Hope it saves you time .
