Beside this, what is a wildcard redirect?
A wildcard redirect allows you to create a redirect based on any page that matches a pattern, regardless of the URL of a specific page. This is especially handy for redirecting whole directories or sections of an old site to a new site.
One may also ask, what is a masked redirect? Masked forwards are similar to a regular URL forward or redirect where a domain you own is sent to an existing website or landing page. Traditionally when a domain is forwarded, you can see the URL changing from your forward to the page it's redirecting to if you keep your eye on the navigation bar.
In this manner, how do you redirect on namecheap?
- Log in to your account on the Namecheap site.
- Select "Manage Domains" from the "My Account" menu.
- Click the domain you want to forward and choose "All Hosts Records."
- Type the destination URL for the domain into the first "IP Address/URL" box, which has a host name of "@." Select "URL Redirect" as the Record Type.
