Website Guide - Web Forwarding...

What is Web Forwarding and Web Mapping?

  1. Web Forwarding
      1. The act of redirecting one domain name to another
      2. If you have two domain names and domain-A is hosted, you can redirect domain-B to the hosted domain-A
      3. No matter which domain is entered by a web user, they will always be sent to the domain-A website
      4. For example, weblink4u.biz is forwarded to weblink4u.co.uk, so users entering the biz-extension will always arrive on the co.uk website
      5. Web forwarding is visible to search engines and knowledgeable web users
  2. Web or Domain Mapping
      1. Although similar in operation to web forwarding, it is completely different
      2. In this instance, domain-B is set up on the server as an alias for domain-A
      3. Like forwarding, no matter which domain is entered by a web user, they will always be sent to the domain-A website
      4. But both domains are treated as one by search engines as both resolve to the same IP Address and website
      5. For example, weblink4u.com is mapped to weblink4u.co.uk, so either names can be used to access the website
      6. Mapped domains have full POP3 email facilities, thus info@weblink4u.com and info@weblink4u.co.uk can be used interchangeably and both will be handled correctly by the server
