I have an asp.net web site, but now i will change to wordpress. Web hosting is another server also. Google and other search engines as old website links. How can "redirect " if is possible from old links to actual website, for ex. home page.

Do you mean redirect non existent pages on the new web server which are currently being pointed to your server from search engines and such?

Yes,

For ex. before i have a page in search engines like www.mysite.com/Contact.aspx?id=1  and now in wordpress i have  www.mysite.com/Contact.

You can use your .htaccess file and do something like:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/Contact.aspx$ /Contact$1 [R=301,L]

Open in new window


Just add a new rule for each page.

Don't add a rule for each page, just use

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.+)\.aspx$ /$1 [QSA,NC,R=301,L]

Open in new window
