    Need some help on the correct way to do a redirect.

    When reviewing backlinks, noticed that backlinks to my homepage were split, with 30% of links going to one URL(http://domain.net/index.html) and the rest to the other URL(http://domain.net), both different representations of my home page....

    What would be the correct syntax to redirect

    http://domain.net/index.html to

    http://www.domain.net/

    Also, does the www matter, so if I do the above redirect, and someone types in http://www.domain.net/index.html, is it also redirected to http://www.domain.net or do I have to add an individual redirect for that.

    Thx Alot for the help
