Connecting the current Domain to another Domain

 

Domain name Forwarding is a special technique to move your web traffic to another website of yours. This concept come into existence when you are making some temporary changes on your main website and you do want you visiters to be using your services then you redirect your traffic to another websites which you are using for your business.

 

This is incredibly very useful if you've recently moved content or rearranged the structure of your site. URL redirection and domain forwarding are two tactics that every webmaster should learn and utilize at some point in their professional career.

 

The most important thing is a 301 redirect and this is the one which major of  search engines like Google recommend that you use. It tells anyone who looks, including the search engines, that the page they are looking for has permanently moved elsewhere.
