Tips on how to redirect your readers to your new domain name
Got a new domain name? Do you need to transfer your reader to new domain name? The safest way to redirect from the old website to the new web site and keep the same search engine rankings is to use the 301 redirect.
What is 301 redirect?
The 301 redirect is the best method to preserve your current search engine rankings when redirecting to your web site. The code “301” is interpreted as “moved permanently”. After the code, the URL of the missing or renamed page is noted, followed by a space, then followed by the new location or file name. You implement the 301 redirect by creating a .htaccess file.
