Wordpress redirects


I am running WordPress and I have about 20 different urls as alias to our main url.

I have domain.co.nz, domain.net.nz, domain.cc and domain.com.au , domain.net

I need to redirect all www.domain and domain. to our main url of www.domain.net

What is the best rules to do this in the .htaccess directory

To Redirect Entire Site:

Redirect 301 / http://www.example.com/


That did not work, firefox complained about incorrect redirects


If the domain is not www.domain.net, make it so.

That is easily encoded in mod_rewrite as:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\\.domain\\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule .? http://www.domain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

Since you’re using WP, REMOVE the <IfModule> wrappers and insert this RewriteCond and RewriteRule immediately after WP’s RewriteEngine on statement.



Hi DK,

Spot on, thank you for your assistance.


Sorry, I overlooked the fact that you’re new here so a belated Welcome to SitePoint! to you!

Then, do you understand the reason to delete the <IfModule> wrapper?



Hi DK,

Must be honest, no. I was having a problem with WP dealing with multiple domains and would love to have a better understanding
