It really is simple to create a static 301 redirect within your .htaccess file. The link below shows the complete code required to redirect one webpage to another.
redirect 301 /some/page/ http://www.website.com/new/page/
In case you are wondering how this works, the structure consists of. redirect 301 (old page) (new page). The first parameter (the old page) must not contain the website url (for example www.webdeveloperblog.co.uk). It must solely contain the path after the url. The second parameter ( the new page ) must contain the whole desired URL for the redirect
