Hi Guys,
Quick and easy one (I think!) for someone who knows what they are doing!

I need to redirect our .org domain to the .com domain, but without all .org pages going to the .com index.

For example, I need www.xyz.org to go to www.xyz.com but also www.xyz.org/folder/index.php to go to www.xyz.com/folder/index.php

The directory structure is identical on both domains (which are on separate servers), and we're moving the .com domain.  I'm getting lost in .htaccess can anyone help?  Also need the code the deal with URLs with and without the www part.

Any thoughts?

You can use mod_rewrite for this, see the example of an .htaccess below.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.xyz.org$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xyz.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Thats great - thanks

I've just realised that although the folder structure is the same its all within a html directory, so I'm guessing I could change:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xyz.com/$1 [R=301,L]

to

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xyz.com/home/$1 [R=301,L]

and it would work?
