    301 Redirect for old html site, now WP managed - how?

    Hi,

    Client's old site was an html site. Now hosted here with Managed Wordpress hosting. How can I create a 301 redirect if no html pages "allowed" in the Managed WP hosting? *Please advise*
    I am totally lost with this issue.

    Thanks for your expertise advice!

    There are couple options...

     

    Redirect via your .htacess file

    Redirect using a plugin.

     

    HTH! 😉

    Hi Judith,

     

    Thanks for the info.

    As is usually the case, I did eventually dig deep enough and figured it out. I was stressing about writing in the .htaccess file, and after reading a lot of positive reviews about the plugin Redirection, I went that route. Omg, I couldn't be happier! It works! Most excellent.

    Thanks again for taking the time to answer - very much appreciated!

    🙂
