Redirect Website url to VLE
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?
