    Help needed regarding 301 redirect

    I wish to change my domain name like example.com to domain.com. Example.com has 10 pages with around 200 backlinks to each page, can someone explain me how to do 301 permanent redirect to domain.com? should i keep the old domain if permanent redirect is done? what about the backlinks i created for the old domain should i change it manually? thoughts and suggestions appreciated from all webmasters and seos.

    It is many way to 301 redirect but this script works always!

    <?php
    header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: http://www.yournewdomain.ltd".$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
    header("Connection: close");
    exit;
    ?>

    The power of old links will be redirect to new domain, but remember to be always owner of 301d domain with BL!

    another "standard" htaccess 301 script

    (redirect with www and without prefix)


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

    Hey guys believe or not but I heard 301 redirects do not fully pass the PageRank and Link value from the redirect.

    At the same time its better not to do too much of redirected pages. If you found some pages in old domain generates no traffic and no PR value means, its better to remove it and replace it with new domain page rather than to redirect.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain$ [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) newdomain$1 [R=301,L]

    or

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain(.*) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ newdomain$1 [R=301,L]

    or

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain$ [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) newdomain$1 [R=301,L]

    I searched all the 301 redirect codes and these are the following codes i came across. I'm really confused with the following codes, which one is correct and working? Some code don't have $ symbol etc, which one i should follow? If anybody did 301 redirect using .htaccess file do share the correct working code.

    If you have cpanel hosting there is probably a 'redirects' wizard in the domains section that will write the proper code for the version of server software installed on the server, just fill in the blanks.

    Thanks for the response, but i'm using Yahoo Small Business and they don't have redirects wizard. If anyone can vouch for correct working code using .htaccess file it'd be of great help for me.
