I'm struggling to redirect using the namecheap dashboard.

Specifically I want to redirect based parameter. So for example:

mywebsite.com/2345 would redirect to otherwebsite.com/query?=2345

Is this possible using the namecheap dashboard? How would I be able to do it?

Thank you!

    I've never used NameCheap, but my guess is that it isn't possible. Domain registrars usually offer simple redirect services that allow you to redirect the pages on a domain exactly to some other domain. If you want a custom redirect that changes the URLs, you usually have to implement that yourself on your own server. – Stephen Ostermiller Jan 12 '19 at 9:30
  • What options does the namecheap dashboard give in terms of redirection? (Perhaps you can provide a screenshot?) Is this a "hosting" control panel or is this a domain registration only? – MrWhite Jan 12 '19 at 11:03
  • Yes, it is possible. For me to check it better, please provide me with the domain name. – Fahad Ur Rehman Khan Jan 14 '19 at 6:03

I don't know of a way to do what you want to do without code since you are rewriting the query string.

To do this, create a php/script page on mywebsite.com/mycript.php that rewrites the url/querystring and then redirects it to otherwebsite.com.

I used PHP as an example, but it could be whatever scripting language your sites are using.
