Many times, you might need guidance on website redirection. Let us take an example if you have a business website abc.com with pretty nice traffic, and for some reason, you decided to close that website and start the same business on xyz.com. So, instead of forever closing abc.com, you can redirect all the traffic to xyz.com, and all the traffic of abc.com will not be wasted. Sounds interesting? Let us learn to set up up site redirection in Directadmin.
