Redirect to new domain in Wordpress

Yet again baffled by .htaccess

I have this site : http://www.marlboroughworldleather.com

Which I want to redirect, keeping the URLs after the domain intact to this :

http://www.marlboroughworld.com/

I've got this in .htaccess:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.marlboroughworldleather.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.marlboroughworld.com/$1 [R=301,L]

However it only redirects if the domain is typed in, for example, I can still go here :
http://www.marlboroughworldleather.com/product-category/homeoffice/ipad-and-iphone-cases/

When it should redirect to here :

http://www.marlboroughworld.com/product-category/homeoffice/ipad-and-iphone-cases/

Any ideas?

Wouldn't this be better? Can't test if it would be.

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

Open in new window

Are you using SSL? This will only redirect non SSL. Another option would be to use php.

Tried spravtek's solution but I get the same, anything outside the root path isn't redirected.

Nope - not SSL.
