Easy URLs to Your Site with .htaccess

Friend and fellow Southside Smoosier Jason Bean has a great article on creating URL shortcuts on your site using GoDaddy. For example, if you wanted https://martech.zone/twitter to forward to http://www.twitter.com/douglaskarr.

If you don’t host on GoDaddy but host on Apache, you can do this by adding some redirects to your .htaccess file. Here’s how:

Redirect 301 /twitter http://www.twitter.com/douglaskarr
Redirect 301 /linkedin http://www.linkedin.com/in/douglaskarr
Redirect 301 /facebook http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?id=734666071
Redirect 301 /youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/douglaskarr
Redirect 301 /rss http://feedproxy.google.com/DouglasKarr
Redirect 301 /subscribe http://marketingtechblog.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=3564d7b6145ced41a5a27dbd1&id=41191bff78
Redirect 301 /mobile http://marketingtech.mofuse.mobi/
