    This is working for me.

    Redirect requests for domain with index.html to www.

    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.html\ HTTP/
    RewriteRule ^index\.html$ [url]http://www.example.com/[/url] [R=301,L]
    Code (markup):
    Wondering if anyone has a more simplified code. My hosting was giving a 403 error. When i got the site back on line, Google was indexing xxx.com/index.html

    That put me in an infinite loop

    Hi
    the simplest way to to do this is the following code. My website (nexwiki.org) uses it.

    Edit it in the htaccess.

    
    redirect http://xxx.com/whatever http://www.yyy.xom/whatever
    
    
    
    Code (markup):
    hope it helps

    Wasn't working because I'm using mod-rewrite

    You should be using 301 in your code, so that Google sees it as a permanent redirection

    
    redirect 301 http://xxx.com/whatever http://www.yyy.xom/whatever
    
    Code (markup):

    301 redirect is the best way to handle a permanent redirection

    1) 301 redirect permanently redirects the URL
    2) 302 redirect is temporary and may confuse search engines

    Use this tool http://www.seologic.com/webmaster-tools/url-redirect.php to check that your redirection is working correctly. You should return

    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

    The cpanel redirect option is limited

    mod-rewrite is the way to go

    Check my article about avoiding duplicate content on index page. Just replace index.php with index.html
