301 Redirects at Domain Level



New Member
Hi all,

Firstly, I'm new to this forum, so thank you for having me.

I've started a blog and it's got around 10 articles. There's not many pages and I'm going to change the URL path.

However, I started with the domain: and yesterday: was available, so I bought it.

As the site, is 8 weeks odd, in the short term it shouldn't have much impact on the rankings, as everything is on page 10.

My question is:

Is there a quicker way of doing domain level redirect in .htaccess?


If: can change to :

The old school way is redirect every single page. However, I'm looking for the page to be lightning fast, so if I can reduce the number of 301's that'll be smashing.

Thanks in advance

If you are changing your domain from "" to "" then you should use 301 redirections. Otherwise, you can mark your website "" as canonical of website "". These are very common and popular techniques. Search in Google for more information.

Hi all.

Thanks I've got it sorted. I can't show the .htaccess code as I need to post 20 times, as the system thinks I'm sending URLs.

My hosting company were very useful.

Thanks all.
