These questions are kinda coming from left field but here they are: If you make redirects through a web panel for your site, does it add special coding to the .htaccess file of your site?

If one of the redirects has a % sign in the URL would that cause your main site not to load when you type it in? i.e. http://www.yourdomain.com

If perhaps this could affect the loading of your site and if this line of coding is in the .htaccess file for the site, does it need to be removed or is there nothing wrong with it?: RedirectMatch temp ^/survey$ http://index1eng.sur...p.clickbank.net

Is there anything wrong with this one?: RedirectMatch temp ^/$ http://hop.clickbank...ex1eng/surveysc

..The reason I'm asking this is because my webhosts removed both these lines from my .htaccess file (I have no clue how this coding got there in the first place), and the one redirect was good and made me money. The other line they claim made it so my site wouldn't load, how is this?

Nope, I'm just trying to figure out if my web hosting company messed me over. They deleted a redirect that I added through the control panel for my site.

For some reason I guess the redirects coding was on my .htaccess file and one of them was messed up but one was good and made me money. The bad one I guess messed up how my site loaded and would give it a clickbank 404 message which made no sense to me. (The bad link was a clickbank url). They removed both redirects and I failed to notice this and wasn't making any money for 10+ days. Their trying to tell me its not their fault.
