I'm very new at this so apologies if this is too easy, but would this be proper syntax for redirecting an entire site to a new domain? This is what was suggested so my other concern is blank lines, spaces, etc. Thanks

RewriteEngine On

# Redirect Entire Site to New Domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^oldsite.org$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://newsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Yes that's correct and would 301 redirect everything on oldsite.org to the same path on http://newsite.com. Plenty of similar questions on the StackExchange network such as this one.

Thanks Geoff. @krokola directed me to that question but I just wanted to be absolutely certain. – lstewart Feb 23 '14 at 17:46
