I have read up on the .htaccess file and I am not sure if our server can do this.

Will a redirect via a meta tag work, and what will the effect on search engine rankings be?

If I cannot use meta tags, or .htaccess file, what is my best alternative?

Thanks for your time.

There are many ways of performing a redirect.

This can be subject to the platform your server is on and the server side language available.

So if it's windows you will have ASP by default.

If it's *nix then .htaccess should be available.

You can also use PHP, PERL, COLDFusion, PYTHON etc. etc..

If you use the meta refresh method it is beleived if you have a refresh of 1 second, that implies a 301 redirect any other number is a 302.

But that is not proven, so don't rely on it.

One other place you can try is via your control panel for your webhosting if on a shared environment or use your domain registrar if you manage your domains in that manner.

Hope this helps.
