How to redirect domain to subdirectory without redirecting url

f you want to redirect your domain name to sub-directory but the url shows only domain name

For example : redirect to but the URL shows only

Then add the following rules in your .htaccess file.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule    ^$   blog/    [L]
RewriteRule    (.*)  blog/$1 [L]

It is easy but to perform this task you need to consider one of the hostripple web hosting plans and then edit or upload a .htaccess file from your file manager or SSH access on your cPanel hosting plan or a Linux Dedicated Server or the linux VPS hosting plan.
