    Hi all,

    Could someone let me know the 'most' effective method to quickly redirect ALL pages from one domain to a new domain (index page only).

    Thanks!!

    in your .htaccess file in the root directory, make it this:

    Code:
    # This allows you to redirect your entire website to any other domain 
    Redirect 301 / (url goes here)
    
    or set up a missing.php in your .htaccess file and put in a header redirect in there to the new site.

    TheDaemon, thanks.

    So I had this code in here, is this too elaborate, or not going to redirect the link juice...

    .htaccess

    Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.mynewsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    As long as you do 301s, you should be fine. I don't believe that Google lessens the backlink due to a proper 301 redirect. Mine will redirect to the root, thedarkest's redirect will preserve the file structure.

    You can add an .htaccess file by just adding a file named .htaccess file to your root directory. Depending on your server configuration, this should be sufficient.
