Redirect index page
Need help with just redirecting one page

 5:32 pm on Jun 5, 2006 (gmt 0)

I have been searching on how to do this for about an hour so I am sorry if this is a repetitive question.

I have no experience with how to do a redirect with a .httaccess but have a friend who wants just their index page www.example.com redirected to www.subdomain.anotherexample.com (a different site with a subdomain).

They want to link this subdomain to other pages of their exmaple.com site as well (kind of confusing but there is a reason for it).

So I only need the index page forwarded and not any other pages of the site.

Can anyone help me with this or show me the correct place to go? Thanks!

[url=http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_alias.html#redirectmatch]RedirectMatch[/url] 301 ^/$ http://www.subdomain.other_example.com

is the simplest method, although in this case, you are redirecting to a sub-subdomain. That is, "www" is a subdomain of "otherexample.com," and that's a fairly ugly URL... If there's no really good reason for it, I'd suggest redirecting to "subdomain.other_example.com" instead. Note that in "www.example.com" the "www" is a subdomain of "example.com," which is the domain. There is nothing special about "www" -- It is just a subdomain like any other.

it does not need the www so thanks for the information. This helps me a ton. Thanks!
