    301 redirection with an .htaccess

    Hi everybody !
    I want to make a 301 redirection with htaccess, but here is a little difficulty :
    I know how to redirect ONE page to another page.
    I know how to redirect ALL pages from a website to the index of another website.
    What I want is to redirect all the pages from my old url to my new url, but not list all of them in the htaccess...
    Exemple :
    http://myolddomain.com/story.php to http://brandnewdomain.com/story.php

    All the pages have the same name, site has the same structure, the only thing that changes is the url.
    Is it possible to do a global redirect, that would redirect all the inner pages to the new inner pages on the new site ?

    I looked through all the documentation I could find everywhere, but I couldn't find help on this specific question.

    Also, about my dear google-rank : I finally managed to get myself a 4 and I intend to keep it. Unfortunately, by moving my site to a new server and new domain, I'll most likely lose it. Is it possible to keep the high google-rank my old pages had for the new pages ?

    Thanks for your help !!!

    Should be able to use mod_rewrite:

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^myolddomain.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://brandnewdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Thanks !
    And now, what if I want to exclude some files from the redirection ? (some pictures, some pdf files, some css... For bandwidth reason, I prefer to leave them on this unlimited bandwidth server)

    Ok, so my server is not allowing me to use mod_rewrite.
    I had to move all site with this instruction :

    Redirect permanent / http://newaddress.com

    The problem is that there are a few pages and a few folders that I absolutely DON'T want to redirect... Big crash ahead if I do.
    How can I exclude some folders and some files from this redirection ?

    Or, more :
    if the only choice is to redirect page by page, how can I redirect at least folder by folder ?

    Thanks for your help !!!
