My site shows up for the non www and the www.
When I check site: my site the two have a different numbers of pages in the search engines.
I want to redirect to the www site.
My hosting service told me that they have both the non and the www. at the DNS level redirecting to the same IP address.
They also told me to learn some asp to figure it out.
If anyone has a idea please make it simple step by step. It sounds like I just need to put a little code in a file.
I have really been looking around the internet a lot and I have not found a clear cut example.
I am using Frontpage 2003 and I found some advice recommending not using FP extensions and creating a htaccess file with the standard few lines of code.
Any ideas on this?
Normally you need to be able to access the IIS Manager on your hosting account to mess around with redirects. Another option would be to install something like ISAPI_Rewrite.
Have you checked the threads I linked to above?
Based on all that I have read, if both www and non www show up when I type them in a browser then I need to redirect.
The web site is in Frontpage and just html.
Do I need to think about moving this site and not using Frontpage extensions to fix this? Is it worth this much work?
The link provided in msg #:13 of this thread: IIS 5.0 and 301 redirection [webmasterworld.com] will work.
