I've read that .htaccess takes pretty long because it has to read it 3 times before displaying the page and I've noticed it. Is there a way to add a redirect in the VirtualHost of Apache instead? Thanks in advance for all the help.

According to http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_alias.html#redirect
You may put it into: server config, virtual host, directory, .htaccess

Also: everything You can do in .htaccess You can do in httpd.conf as well. If You intend to not use .htaccess at all, turn off looking for it in apache's httpd.conf as well.
