How to redirect all website visitors to a subfolder of your domain

To redirect all your visitors to a subfolder on your domain, for example www.domain.com to www.domain.com/shop:
  1. Create a file called .htaccess in your website's main folder (normally called public_html). With our Canadian web hosting service, you can create this file using the File Manager in your cPanel control panel.
  2. Open the file and add the following 2 lines:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^$ /shop [L]

  3. Replace the word "shop" with the name of your subfolder
  4. Save the file and test your website to make sure it works as expected
