Please notice that I am changing the name of the directory where my html files are stored, and I am also changing the file name and htm to html
I understand that I need to setup a 301 redirect pages so here are my questions:
1- The website is hosted by Godaddy and it is Windows, What is the best 301 Redirect method supported by Godaddy/Windows that I should use?
2- Do I need to create a 301 redirect pages for each of my old htm files?
3- Where do I store those files?
I really appreciate your help
The problem was because my website is hosted by godaddy on windows server and godaddy folks do not provide a simple solution to redirect html pages, HERE is the link to their 301 help page: [help.godaddy.com...] you see the solution for different extensions expect the most common.. html!
I tried to search the web and I could not find any tutorial or guide anywhere that shows a simple way to do it maybe because I am not a programmer or developer, so I went ahead and switched the hosting to Linux since my website is all html pages with one asp contact form which I changed to php in 10 minutes. After that I used the .htaccess method and it was a very simple process to have all the pages wherever they are on the website redirected to new file names.
Thank you again.
