Let’s head on over to your Hostgator cpanel once more (enter your URL and
append “/cpanel”).
Now, find the menu-section titled “Domain” and click on the “Redirects” icon.

This takes you to a page where you can configure redirects. Before we move on,
a quick explanation: Right now, your site actually has two different addresses,
one beginning with www. and the other one beginning with your domain name,
right after the http://.
In my example:

and

http://thisnewdomain.net/

In terms of backlinks (a bit more on those below), this is not ideal, because
some people might link to your site’s www-version and others to the non-www-
version. This results in the backlinks being spread out between the two options
instead of concentrated on one of them.

To avoid this, we are going to make sure that one version redirects to the other.
In the example below, I’m going to show you the setup for redirecting the www-
version to the non-www-version.

Leave the redirect type at “Permanent (301)” and select your domain in the

drop-down menu. In the field below, type in your domain-name, starting with
http://, but not using www.

Then, select the radio-button for “Only redirect with www.” and click on the
“Add” button.

That’s it. To test if it works, type in your URL beginning with www. Once the

page loads, you should see that the address you are at is the one without www.
This same redirect can also be done the other way around: Redirecting the non-

www to the www. It’s just a matter of personal preference, so do whichever you

like better.

In case something goes wrong with a redirect you set up, you’ll find all your

active redirects listed on this same options-page in you cpanel, where you can
edit and remove them anytime.
