Hi Guys n Girls,
I hope this is in the right place. I have recently uploaded my html website and have run some SEO tools telling me that there is no 301 redirect present.
I have a www. version and a none www. version of the site. Google has found the none www version. I use some front page forms so my site is hosted with a company running windows server 2003 and front page server extensions present.
I called them and asked them to put the 301 redirect in place server side using IIS 6.0 (Which is installed) After a weekend of being fobbed off by their support I gather that it is not their company procedure to touch anything in ISS on a shared server and that they will not do it for love nor money.
Apache is installed on teh windows server so I wanted to try the .htaccess method but they have said that on their server this has very limited function and will not work. They also said this .htaccess will not even run some simple PHP scripting.
This leaves me with few options. My pages are all .htm extension so by using PHP scripts they would have a .php extension if the server allows PHP scripts to run (Im have no idea) or asp script would become .asp extension etc etc.
I do not know any php, or asp or asp.net however when I checked the header return (whilst trying various above mentioned scripts) i found that asp.net was mentioned so presume the server supports this.
I was always into hardware and networking so I only did minimal programming and webdesign.
Please help what can I do and how can I do it?
