hi,

i have two sites. irishfinancialnews.com and irishfinancialnews.ie

both of them are hosted by google apps.

now i want to re-direct the .ie site to the .com site.

am i to understand it that i need to tell the ie domain (they wont allow me to do so i have to give them clear instructions) to change my cname to irishfinancialnews.com . but that is already pointing(the www record) to ghs.google.com so i am a bit confused.

in google apps dashboard i can have an alias domain but i think that is just for email.

would appreciate if someone could spread some slight on the issue.

tnks.

I think using 301 redirect using htaccess will help you for redirecting sites. ;)

If you (either directly or indirectly) control DNS, you can simply add the second site to the zone file for the first. All requests for the domain, will be sent to the content tree for the first.

You could also use a meta redirect or a javascript redirect.

Code: [ Select ]
<body onLoad="javascript:window.location.href='http://irishfinancialnews.com'">
</body>
  1. <body onLoad="javascript:window.location.href='http://irishfinancialnews.com'">
  2. </body>

There are many redirecting sites available. 301 redirection is good.

This sounds right, I dont see why you would need a redirect script, you can just point 1,2,3,100 domains to the same ip, and just direct all traffic to the same directory?

Only thing I can think of that would be negative is that spiders dont really like duplicate content (or so i am led to believe)

but i dont think they like redirects either.
