    Hello,

    So i recently purchased an expired domain and many of its links are pointed to a subdomain. I cant seem to figure out how to 301 redirect through .htaccess - anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.


    For example this is my goal:

    subdomain.domain.com/post1 -->>> domain.com/post1
    subdomain.domain.com/post2 -->>> domain.com/post2

    and so forth.

    Do i need to set back up the subdomain in DNS before i try to 301 through htaccess?

    I haven't tested it, but this .htaccess code should do the trick:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.domain\.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    You could manage the dns instead of playing with htaccess.
