redirect site using the home url

I need to move a WP site – i’m thinking – to minimize downtime – I could create a temporary site (http://www.paradigmtech.dreamhosters.com/) and redirect the current site (http://www.paradigmtech.ca) to the temp site – can I do that by making the home and/or site url option to the temporary site?

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for asking. You can redirect your traffic on “http://www.paradigmtech.ca” to “http://www.paradigmtech.dreamhosters.com/” during the migration process by adding the following line in the .htaccess file at the root directory of “http://www.paradigmtech.ca”

    Redirect 301 / http://www.paradigmtech.dreamhosters.com/

    In this way, you can redirect all your traffic to your temporary site without changing any configuration of your original WordPress site.

    I believe, this will help. Please let us know if you have any confusion or any further query. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
