301 redirect from old web pages to new web pages on Network Solutions

 8:20 pm on Jan 30, 2014 (gmt 0)

I've got a very simple problem with a rather frustrating simpler solution that I couldn't find.

The problem is I need to 301 redirect a few pages from an old website to a new website pages. I've done it before and it takes less than a few minutes to do it.

But this time...I'm blocked. I don't have a clue how to do it..only because it's on Network Solutions hosting. I don't even know where to begin.

I think the old site was built with their website builder...almost a decade ago and now I'm struggling with it. So, I was wondering if you've ever worked with Network Solutions then please shed some light on it.

Do you have FTP access to the server to place a htaccess file in the root folder of the site?

overlapping g1smd, as usual

For the benefit of people coming along later-- beginning with me ;) -- could you explain what the Network Solutions issue is? Do they not allow htaccess?

welcome to WebmasterWorld, Nazmul!

I don't even know where to begin.

is your web server apache? what version?
what type of hosting plan do you have?
what have you tried?
there are plenty of examples to help solve most problems in this forum.

:: prolonged detour to host named in OP ::


If you purchased your ... Windows hosting package after September 6th 2012 you were provisioned on our Windows 2008 servers and will have access to IIS configuration manager and will also have the ability to Start/Stop IIS Applications, edit general application pool settings, and setup application directories.

So are we on Apache or IIS? I'm hoping Apache, as this is the Apache subforum. Otherwise you'll have to ask next door in the IIS subforum.

They do kinda seem to imply that you can use htaccess if you're on a unix server. (For $2.99/month? If so, I'm paying too much :()
