I host on Linux economy with GoDaddy - anyways I want to move and I used their 301 feature via their admin panel.

I wasnt able to upload a .htaccess hence why I had to go through their system.

Here is an example of the code is created - can this be used on another server/ hosting company or is it "unique" to GD?

rewriterule ^4\/old-page\.html(.*)$ "http\:\/\/www\.my-site\.com\/security\/$1" [R=301,L] #509443b1b3d64b
rewritecond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.my-site.com$ [OR]
rewritecond %{HTTP_HOST} ^my-site.com$


*** It's that #509443b1b3d64b which looks weird.

Im more used to writing my own .htaccess hence the question - thanks

It's just a comment.


The answer to your question is, yes, the code can be moved with the domain to a different server. It is not unique to GoDaddy.

Comments have no effect on the performance.  Deleting everything from the hash mark onward for that one line.
