Webmasters need to be familiar with html code in order to be able to place all of the commands that site visitors might want in the.htaccess file that is stored on the web server. It is possible to use a text editor to create the commands that will be executed by the.htaccess file; however, these commands cannot be placed as tools.Htaccess Redirect Generator, which can be found on the website qwikseotools.com, can be used to perform a redirect either from non-www to www or from www to non-www. If you want the tool to generate the code for you to include in the.htaccess file of your website, you will need to navigate to the website smallseotools.com from your search browser. On the website, scroll to the bottom of the page until you see the icon for the.htaccess redirect generator tool, and then click on it. It offers two different choices:
Switch from the www to the non-www format.
Change any non-www addresses to www.
The first choice will always be selected automatically. After you have entered your domain name, click the button that says "get your code." There is a captcha that needs to be verified before proceeding. After you have completed those steps, the code that was generated will be shown in the box labelled Results. You are now able to copy the code from here and then paste it into the.htaccess file on your server.
After successfully bringing the.htaccess file up to date, it will carry out the function of redirecting traffic. Now, without any disruption, visitors to the website will be taken to a different website.
