Parked Domain... Redirected?

Recommended Posts

[brushes dust off from long absence ;) ]

 

Hey gang, how do Parked domains work?

 

I have a client who I have parked a second domain:

 

Domain: www.discount-pumps.biz

Parked Domains: discountpumps.biz

 

What I would like is a permanent redirect (i.e. discountpumps.biz is permantly redirected to discount-pumps.biz). Right now both URLs are functional... both pointing to the same page but each with a unique URL (which is carried out throughout all the internal links).

 

How would I go about making only one unique URL (e.g. 301-like redirect)?

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks for any feedback.

Scott,

 

Why not set it up to forward right from the registrar? Most offer forwarding as an option and you wouldnt have to set up anything like a redirect. You will unpark it though.

That is what I will do (or actually just did).

 

I thought that a parked domain here would do that though (i.e. default to the forwarding domain's URL).

 

Thanks Rob :)

You can do it through htaccess redirects, but it's easier just to do it the way you did.

I was curious...

 

When I unparked discountpumps.biz I received this from WebHost Manager:

 

>discountpumps.biz -> deleted from server19. 
discountpumps.biz -> deleted from server28. 
discountpumps.biz -> deleted from server18. discountpumps.biz -> deleted from server16. Updating Mail Routes...Done
Removing localdomains entires....
Removing ServerAlias line....Done
Parked Domain discountpumps.biz Unparked!

 

Looks strange to me, why so many servers?
