Correctly redirect a webpage to a new address

Sometimes you need to change a URL (address) of a page in order for it to be redirected to a new page.

If the original page is ranking well on searches it is essential to perform a 301 redirect.

To do this yourself you need to access Cpanel then in the file manager access the .htaccess file

Enter the originalĀ URL and point to the new URL - like these examples

Redirect 301 /home.html https://www.lec.ie/
Redirect 301 /probationary-teachers.html https://www.lec.ie/contact-us.html

Once done save the file and you are done!
