    Redirect of non www pages to www pages with 1and1

    Hi All,

    We host our site with 1and1 (using their MS Business hosting package) and by default, all pages are available at both the www and non www URL's (i.e http://www.website.com AND http://website.com).

    For SEO reasons, I'd like to 301 redirect all non www URLs to their www counterparts, but I don't see anyway of doing this with the hosting package we have.

    Has anyone here using 1and1's MS hosting found any way of doing this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards to all!

    Thumbs up htaccess redirect

    Add following line in .htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.domain\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http : //www . domain . com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Hope this will work

    @ Gelidus

    I reckon you're out of options using the MS Business package. Do you specifically need to use a Windows server? Moving to Linux would give you more flexibility (assuming that 1and1 allows you to edit .htaccess). If you're not using .asp or .net then do consider moving to a Linux server.
