Redirecting and seperating 3 sites

Help and advice much appreciated

I've been searching previous posts etc and believe I know roughly what I need to do but am not 100% sure how to do it.

I have 3 sites, say, www.ge.com which is the main one and has the hosting.
I then have,say, www.pgw.com which actually points to www.ge.com/web
Then www.ccf.com which points to www.ge.com/web2

Because of Google problems etc I want them to have their own seperate hosting space, which I now have. I wonder if anyone had an idiots guide on how to do the 301 thing (presuming that to be the way)

I hand code all my pages using notepad and save them as .htm files then simply upload to my space.
I am therefore not even sure to to create the htaccess or where to put it.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated and I apologise if the topic is tiresome to more long standing members.
All the best

301 redirects [webmasterworld.com]

A search at your favorite search engine for htaccess tutorial will get you going in the right direction there.

Hi James
thanks for the 301 link, much appreciated. I did try looking for the htaccess info but could not find the absolute basics. I'll give it another go.
Thanks again

Word of advice from a similar newbie: use spell check!

as a follow up to the OP, I now have the space and have transferred the sites. I have had no success with the 301 though.

I pasted this into notepad

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* [ccf.com...] [R=301,L]

saved as ".htaccess" and uploadeded it to www.ge.com/web2
but when I go to www.ge.com/web2 nothing happens, no redirect no error etc.

Just wondered if any could offer any easy to follow pointers.
All the best
