How to Redirect www or Non-www URLs with .htaccess via cPanel?

As a cPanel user, you have the capability to compel users to redirect from the www to non-www URL, or vice versa, for your domain. Simply add a directive in the .htaccess file to implement the desired redirection.

Redirecting www to Non-www URLs using .htaccess:

  1. Access your cPanel account.

  2. Create or edit the .htaccess file in the document root of your domain through File Manager.

  3. Add the following code to the file's conclusion:

# Redirect www URLs to non-www URLs - like http://www.yourdomain.com to http://yourdomain.com

RewriteEngine on

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

RewriteRule (.*) http://yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
