    I am confused as to the right way to redirect my website.

    I mivred myu blog recently and my old address was
    http:// http://www.mmti.org./podcasts/assessment and now it is http://massagetherapypodcasts.com/orthopedic-assessment.

    Would this work if I enter teh appropriate website addresses?

    Redirect to www (htaccess redirect)

    Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all requests coming in to domain.com will get redirected to http://www.domain.com
    The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your old website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine on
    rewritecond %{http_host} ^domain.com [nc]
    rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [r=301,nc]

    that's the one I would prefer to use
    it will work well if the url's are correct

    Thanks so much I will try it.

    So I would edit the .htaccess file found under the http://www.mmti.org main directory?

    If you don't mind, I have two more questions:

    1. I am redireccting 6 subdirectories from one domain to 6 on a different domain. Could I just enter and edit the appropriate code 6 times?

    2. Where in the .htaccess fle does the code go?

    I already see this code in the file:

    #--- DH-PHP handlers ---
    AddHandler fastcgi-script fcg fcgi fpl
    AddHandler php-fastcgi .php
    Action php-fastcgi /cgi-bin/dispatch.fcgi
