Is there a way to make requests for Mp3s on EX.com redirect to an Html file on AMPLE.com?

I have 70+ mp3s on an outdated page. Id like any clicks for those mp3s to redirect to another website. Any ideas?

Best answer: You can put redirects in your .htaccess file to cover all of them in one go, if the server supports it. They generally do.

The easies way to do this is to use .htaccess redirects. Add a line like this to the .htaccess file on EX.com (create an .htaccess file if one doesn't exist):

RedirectMatch /(.+)\.mp3 http://ample.com/home.html

You can also put redirect statements in a <Directory> or <VirtualHost> or <location> tag in the apache config, rather then an individual .htaccess file. You'll need to do this if you're hosting on windows.

What i'd do is save an html file with an mp3 extension, but that'll only work if your server is configured to say that mp3 files contain html markup...
