    Hey Laurent_C !

    Hope you are having a great day!

    If you are configuring your sub-domains from the cPanel you can find the root folder and redirect options there. Here's a screenshot for reference.

    Moreover, if you prefer using a htaccess rule, you can put the following in your htaccess file.

    Redirect 301 / http://anewaddress.site.com/

    Hope this helps. Let me know if this works for you. Thanks!

    Hi Laurent_C,

    To solve this, please add these two lines in your .htaccess file in the root directory of your multisite:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ana.site.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://anewaddress.site.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

    That should solve your issue.
