    So, I am using a shared hosting account on hostgator and I'm trying to modify my htaccess files so that my addon domains don't get penalized for dupe content. I have one quick question. Do I add the following to the addon domain htaccess or do I replace the addon domain htacess with it.

    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine OnRewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^addondomain\.co.uk [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.addondomain.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.addondomain.the-hosting-domain\.co.uk
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.addondomain.co.uk/$1 [R=permanent,L]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^addondomain.the-hosting-domain\.co.uk
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.addondomain.co.uk/$1 [R=permanent,L]

    Obviously that's just a template but my current htaccess file is


    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    So do I add the first inbetween the wordpress lines or within the ifmodule or do I just replace everything between the wordpress with the top lines of code or do I replace EVERYTHING. I'm not too familiar with this programming language so any help would be great.
