How do you make HTACESS redirects from old pages to new pages?

HTACCESS stands for Hypertext Access. HTACCESS is the default directory level configuration file for Apache, which allows for custom configurations and commands.

Note: The file must be saved as .htaccess. (Not htaccess.txt or htaccess.html)

Here is an example of a 301 permanent redirect from an old page to a new page:

redirect 301 outdatedpage.html http://www.example.com/newpage.html

Here is an example of how to make a redirect to a custom 404 error page, which is where the visitors are redirected when a page is not found:

ErrorDocument 404 http://www.example.com/404error.html
