I have looked around with this, but can't get a strategy to the problem.

I wish to redirect a classic URL to a different URL.

That old URL is: http://www.example.org.uk/index.html?parents-welcome.html=&2=

The brand new URL is: http://www.example.org.uk

Any help on establishing the redirect could be greatly well accepted, I have been wrestling with this particular for age range..

Put the following inside your .htaccess file using the relaxation of the RewriteRule. If you're not already using mod_rewrite, read up.

RewriteRule ^index.html$ / [L,QSA,R=301]

You might have the ability to use Redirect, however i am unsure whether it appends the query string.

UPDATE

If you do not want the query string, drop the QSA flag:

RewriteRule ^index.html$ / [L,R=301]
