I'm after some advice on how best to redirect our school website url to our VLE.
Currently our website has a temporary page which redirects to our uniservity VLE after 30 secs. I would like it so it redirects instantly. It would also be great to retain the Website address as it's better than the VLE one
I think the server is IIS, as I tried a .htaccess file and it didn't work. I'm aware I could use a meta-refresh or a frames page, or reduce the countdown to redirect but I've heard all of these are perceived badly by search engines.
The website is hosted by RM and I could just send them a change request to 301 redirect to the school-portal address, but I often have to use the webspace to prove we own the domain for certificate requests etc. and this wouldn't keep the sch domain visible.
Is there a way to achieve this?
If you don't want to use a 301 then I think the only other option is to use a standard redirect in a HTML file.
The code is:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<title>Hailsham Community College - Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.school-portal.co.uk/GroupHomepage.asp?GroupID=273775"></HEAD>

dont matter was a bit slow on submitting that, EduIT beat me lol
but tbh, if you have access to the domain account, you could just setup a forwarder for that domain to point to Hailsham Community College **
You can redirect your page with the following piece of code:
Code:<%@ Language=VBScript %> <% Response.Status="301 Moved Permanently" Response.AddHeader "Location", "http://www.school-portal.co.uk/Grouphomepage.asp?GroupId=273775" %>
