This information only pertains to Hurricane Electric's Shared Web Hosting package. There may be different information in our other categories.

Is it possible to redirect all HTTP requests that come in for http://mydomain/mydirectory/* (including subdirectories) to the same directory structure at http://anotherdomain/mydirectory/?

Yes, all new accounts have this capability.

To create the redirect, you can put the following in your .htaccess file:

Redirect /mydirectory http://anotherdomain/mydirectory

It will traverse symlinks as they existed in the public_html directory.

Please note that .htaccess is not available for "Simple Virtual Host" accounts. A list of the features for each account type is available here. If you need to upgrade your account type, please email to request an account type upgrade.

How do I set up an html page to automatically redirect a browser to another page?

You can do that with a META Redirect. In your HTML documents between the<HEAD> and </HEAD> tags, put the following code:


Make sure to replace where it says with the URL you want to redirect them to.
