    I can probably ask one of our guys on Tuesday - he's a bit of a whiz with regular expressions + mod_rewrite ..

    I'm surprised my above solution doesn't work. Maybe there's a conflict in your .htaccess file? Can you paste the contents of your .htaccess so I can have a look? But before you do, try this...

    RedirectMatch permanent /.* http://www.domain.com/

    Thanks for all the help Guys.
    The solution that worked was:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule .* http://www.domain.com/ [R=301,L]

    PHP.Allstar for some reason removing the brackets in your solution made the difference.

    .htaccess wildcard redirect example

    i own multiple domains for my site MethodShop, including methodshop.com, methodshop.net, etc.. When doing maintenance, i'll divert traffic between the different sites so my users don't have their experience interrupted. below is the htaccess wildcard script i use. it takes whatever URL the user attempts to access and mirrors that link on another domain.

    for example,

    would redirect to

    here's the script....

    #htaccess script for methodshop.net
    #rewrites all methodshop.net URLs to methodshop.com

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.methodshop.com\/$1 [R=301,L]
