I am moving domains.  On the old domain I created an htaccess file with the following contents only:

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

Is this correct?  Should I have any other code or text int he file?

Im trying to preserve the existing link structure.  So if they go to

old.com/why/because

they end up on

new.com/why/because

Not to mention, if they go to www.old.com or old.com, they get forwarded to www.new.com

I believe I figured out the issue.  I had the DNS host pointing towards the correct spot, but I didn't realize that www, via CNAME, was still pointing towards the old host.  I have rectified the mistake.
