I've got a site I'm looking to transfer over to my DH account, right now the content is all in a sub-directory, www.domainname.com/site/index.html, and I want to have them just go to www.domainname.com/index.php. All the pages will be switched from .html pages to .php page. From looking through the forum here I've found that a .htaccess would be the best choice. If I do a .htaccess redirect will that affect my search engine rankings at all? I know there's a meta redirect, but google isn't a fan of it I know. Also, is this the code that I should use:
redirect 301 /index.html http://www.domain.com/index.php
Would I then have to add a new line for each page that I'm looking to do a redirect for? Any advice would be much appreciated.
