I'm currently redirecting all pages from my old domain to my new domain by using a htaccess 301 redirect.
The htaccess code I'm using is:
RedirectMatch permanent /.* http://domain.com/
After uploading this file to my domain, my load spiked from 1.34~ to about 8.75~ constant.
I was wondering if there's a more optimized way of implementing this htaccess 301 redirect? To clarify, I want to redirect all pages from my old domain to my homepage on my new domain.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
