It is used when you want to redirect your web site or web pages. The code “301” is interpreted as “moved permanently”. 

Requirements for using a 301 redirect

  • .htaccess file

How do I implement a 301 redirect?
 

For example non www to www

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example.com [NC]

RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

</IfModule> 

Save the .htaccess file to your root directory

 When the search engine spiders visit your old web site or web pages, they will automatically be redirected to the new web site or web page.
