If your server is running Apache, try this redirect (place it in your .htaccess file in your root directory):

Redirect 301 /index.html http*://www.domain.com/
(ignore the * above)

It's a good idea to make sure you pick either www.domain.com or domain.com for your site. You can read more about the recent problems this has caused here:

I am also running into a problem with a 301 redirect.

My .htaccess file reads:

redirect permanent /page.html [abccompany.com...]

For some reason this redirect works in Firefox when I go to the page.html page.

But when I use IE I receive the http 404 not found error header as well when I use 301 redirect server response tools online.

Any ideas what I may be doing wrong, or what might be wrong?
