Redirect Issue - Godaddy Managed Wordpress Hosting

Dear All

I 'm having a small issue and need help. I 'm hosting my website pakistantribune.com(dot)pk at Godaddy managed Wordpress. Recently, I decided to change my domain from pakistantribune.com(dot)pk to pktribune(dot)com.

Godaddy gives an option to add the domain name and make it primary. Now both the domains are added to the same account with pktribune(dot)com serving as the primary domain.

When I access pakistantribune.com(dot)pk, it goes to pktribune(dot)com. This is exactly what is required. However, everything other than homepage stays at pakistantribune.com(dot)pk and doesn't redirect.

Neither my domain registrar nor domain host is giving the option of domain forwarding.

How can I redirect whole domain pakistantribune.com(dot)pk to pktribune(dot)com? The two sites are using exactly same resources and the same .htaccess file.

Godaddy has generated following entries in the .htaccess file
RedirectMatch 301 ^/(\d+)/([^/]+).html$ pakistantribune(dot)com(dot)pk/$2.html
RedirectMatch 301 ^/([^/]+).html/PakistanTribune$ pakistantribune(dot)com(dot)pk/$1.html
RedirectMatch 301 ^/([^/]+).html?ModPagespeed=noscript$ pakistantribune(dot)com(dot)pk/$1.html

Its wordpress right? you need to edit the database I guess config file still has the old name. If thats changed to new domain all should work fine.

I think you should remove the domain alias and configure another/new hosting account for the old domain and put an htaccess redirect on it.

You could probably use .htaccess code like this:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^pakistantribune.com.pk [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.pakistantribune.com.pk [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://pktribune.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]
Got a little help from: http://www.inmotionhosting.com/suppo...t-via-htaccess

The two RewriteCond lines check if the hostname is pakistantribune.com.pk OR www.pakistantribune.com.pk if it is, then a permanent 301 redirect is made to the url http://pktribune.com/$1 the 1$ is the path from the old url now appended to the new domain name.

This is call domain forwarding. No need .htaccess for this. Follow the video you can easily do it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj91...ature=youtu.be
