Hello, and thank you for your question.

If you are interested in redirecting all pages from an old domain to a new one, you can do so with a <a href="" target="_blank">301 redirect in your .htaccess file</a>.

Specifically for your case, if your old site was <strong>example<span style="color:red;">.com</span></strong>, and your new site was <strong>example<span style="color:blue;">.net</span></strong>, you could use the following rewrite rules to permanently redirect everything.

<pre class="code_block" style="width: 500px; white-space: normal; margin-bottom: -30px;">RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example<span style="color:red;">.com</span> [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.example<span style="color:red;">.com</span> [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example<span style="color:blue;">.net</span>/$1 [L,R=301,NC]</pre>

Please let us know if you're having any issues at all getting this to work on your website and we'd be glad to assist you.
