    You need to show what you have tried. This is a seemingly trivial redirect, so maybe there is something fundamental at fault here? Your example shows a single source URL and a single destination URL... is there a more complex mapping here? Is everything after /product/ (eg. product-1 in your example) variable? Do you have other directives in your .htaccess file? – MrWhite Jan 11 at 11:23
            RewriteEngine on
            RewriteRule ^/product/(.*)$ https://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    In .htaccess you need to remove the slash prefix from the RewriteRule pattern. However, since the OP has already "tried dozens of rules", it's quite probable they are putting the directive in the wrong place and/or have conflicts with existing directives. – MrWhite Jan 11 at 11:42
