How to Redirect a Subdomain to Another Page

There are different ways to create a division for specific areas on your website. And creating a Subdomain is one of them. A Subdomain allows you to create additional pages as an extension to your main Domain Name without any cost. In this article, we’ll give you insights on why redirecting a Subdomain is helpful for you and your website. Also, how to redirect a Subdomain in your Hosting Manager.

Why Redirect Subdomain

Website owners use Subdomain for a lot of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Redirect Subdomain’s web pages if it has moved to a new Subdomain location. For example, you can redirect sell.mydomain.com to shop.mydomain.com.
  • Allows you to organise your existing website into a separate site. Making it easier for visitors to remember and accessing these site pages.
  • Forward visitors to specific sections on your website. Or, directly back to your main site. For example, main.mydomain.com to mydomain.com.
  • It is cost efficient. Compared to purchasing a new domain name as an Addon to your site. Subdomains save you from that trouble. You can create additional website pages as an extension for your main domain for free.
