Forwarding a domain with https

To forward the https address of your domain, we recommend using a redirect line in the configuration file (.htaccess) of your website. You can set this up with the following steps:

  • Log in to the Hostpoint Control Panel at If you are already logged in, go to the "Services" area in the title bar.
  • Open the web hosting on which you manage the website in question.
  • Click on "Websites" in the menu on the left.
  • On the right-hand side of the page, follow the blue link to the document root of your website.
  • Create a new file with the name .htaccess. If a file with this name already exists, continue with the next step.
  • Edit the file by clicking on the pencil symobl.
  • Insert the following code and replace https://DESTIONATIONADDRESS.TLD/ with the target URL:
    redirect 301 / https://DESTIONATIONADDRESS.TLD/
  • Save your settings.
