I have a simple PHP website. Let’s call it youtubex.com. I want to redirect youtubex URLs (in the format shown on STEP2) to my website in the format shown on STEP3. Here, I am using YouTube, just for illustration.
STEP1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj62iuaKAhU STEP2: https://www.youtubex.com/watch?v=lj62iuaKAhU STEP3: https://www.youtubex.com/#url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj62iuaKAhU
STEP1 shows any desired URL. STEP2 shows the same URL from STEP1 with youtubex as domain. STEP3 shows the final required URL. I am trying to redirect STEP2 to STEP3.
I tried finding some solutions to this on the internet and SO, but, none help. Here is one.
This should do the work:
