i have tried a few way to do this but nothing has worked. What i want to do is re-direct people to a page on my site that has a rather long URL. I want to just have a simple url listed on an advertisement page that just has a one word url following the domain, like www.example.com/ad
I have used a PHP re-direct in the past but the page had an extension, when i re-named without the extension the page will not run the re-direct and just displays the page as raw text in the browser.
I tried to do the .htaccess redirect using the normal
Redirect /example.com/as http://example.com/12345789.html
but this is also not working at all and still just showing the raw text in the browser. I have the .htaccess file in the same level of the ftp server as the file page that has the re-direct, is this correct?
So in short i need to have my page with no file extension re-direct to another page when its typed directly in the browsers URL box.
