The problem is that I want to redirect the old site to the new one, but the school hosting space does not support PHP (phpinfo() returns the source code) or htaccess (I tried a 301 redirect and nothing happened). What other options do I have? Is there a way to test for htaccess other than what I did? I can do Javscript, but I've heard that's not recommended for healthy SEO.
Redirect 301 /index.htm http://www.example.com/
where example.com is my new address. I also tried a few more combinations with and without the leading slash, and neither worked. But since I used files that didn't exist, i'm going to try using a file that exists first.
UPDATE: I just tried with a file that exists and it still didn't work.
Otherwise, can you simply switch the DNS and point the old domain name or subdomain to a server with scripting or rewrite capabilities, or are you talking about a subdirectory within a university site?
