Apache webserver: redirect requests for domain.com to www.domain.com

Last Updated on April 18, 2021 by admin

Many webmasters want to redirect users that access their websites with "domain.tld" automatically to "www.domain.tld". If you use the Apache web server, you can do this by using Apache rewrite rules.

Add a .htaccess file with the following content in the root directory of the website:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.domain\.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R=301]

If you use ISPConfig as hosting control panel, you can add these rules also in the Apache directives field of the website instead of a .htaccess file
