To clarify, are you wanting visitors to www.yourdomain.com to automatically be redirected to your facebook page?

ex. if visitor goes to www.yourdomain.com then send them directly to www.facebook.com/yourpage

If this is the case, then you'd set an redirect rule in the .htaccess file of yourdomain.com:

Redirect 302 / http://facebook.com/yourpage

Open in new window


I put 302 (temporary) in here, in the event that you don't want this to be a permanent redirect and plan to develop the domain sometime in the future.

Too bad, the answer came this late


HTML & JavaScript Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
window.location = "http://www.facebook.com/"
//-->
</script>

In regards to the javascript redirect you're using, anyone who has script disabled in their browser will not be redirected. They'll just sit on a blank white page, if that's all you have in your index file.

With the 302 redirect, the visitor is sent to the new URL regardless of their browser settings.
