[1st off...I used to host my music (A&R) website on a dedicated windows server...'cause I thought it was necessary for streaming .wma files. when I discovered it wasn't...I went w/ a standard hosting package, w/ GoDaddy...now saving BIG bucks.]
I moved my recording studio's site to it's own domain. [it used to be a series of pages on my A&R site.]
I now need to create a '301 Redirect' in my old site's directory to redirect surfers (who have my old url) to the new site...but more importantly...to retain my ranking w/ the major search engines...!!!
it cannot be done on a Windows server (which I'm on, w/ GoDaddy)...not an .htm redirect anyway, which I need. [&...I don't think I really need windows features like php or asp...I code my site(s) in Dreamweaver as html pages.]
so...if I migrate my site(s) to a Linux server...
1) will standard .wma streaming continue to work...??? (i.e., a .wax file in the directory that points to the .wma).
2) which type of server is FASTER for this task...(if any)...Linux or Windows...???
