If you log in as a super admin, cPanel sends you to the admin dashboard first, but if you join in as a user, Spanel takes you directly to your account’s control panel.

2. Click List Accounts from the admin dashboard to go to your control panel.

In the file manager, look for your domain’s root directory and open it.

6. If you’re putting up a redirect for your main domain, the root directory should be the public_html.

7. Locate a file named .htaccess in the root directory, right-click the file to reveal a menu, then choose Edit to open the editor

8. Now, copy and paste your redirect rule into the editor and save.

And, to redirect from non-www URL to www URL, add the below code:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yoursite.com 
RewriteRule (.*) https://www.yoursite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Save the .htaccess file.

After that, type your URL without the www in your browser to confirm it’s redirecting to the www version.
