    if you dont have access to IIS then do this

    open a notepad and type the below instruction

    Redirect permanent /

    and then save the file as .htaccess (remember the whole filename should be just .htaccess no name before . or no extension after htaccess it is just .htaccess) and then upload this to your root directory through ftp

    If you do not have access to the IIS configuration you cannot do this.

    Htaccess does *not* have any effect in IIS.
