    Say I have domain1.com and domain2.com. I decide that domain2.com would be a better domain name for my site, so I want to move all the content from domain1 to domain2, and then I want to 301 domain1 to domain2. Except I only have one hosting package and I can only host one domain at a time, so when I host domain2, domain1 will go offline.

    Do I have to buy another hosting package to 301 domain1 to domain2?

    Which hosting provider are you using? This can be done using htaccess, but your hosting has to support the rule. if it supports, then first point your domian1 to the same nameserver and use this for htaccess (just an example. Change it as necessary)

    he's asking if you can 301 without hosting.

    OP- you might be able to from your domain control panel but im not sure

    You should read the thread fully first. He has a single domain host and he wants the domain 1 to be forwarded to domain 2. Domain 1 can be forwarded to domain 2 using htaccess, if he points the domain 1 to the same name server. But for doing that, the hosting provider must support multiple domains pointed to a pair of name servers...

    EDIT: If you are using godaddy, then forget it. I tried but they are smarter than me lol :p

    It will be a redirect, but not a 301 redirect.

    Yes this can be done with a DNS service. You can find countless of companies, there provide somekind of DNS service for you.

    Which registrar do you think allows a permanent redirect? It would be interesting if someone does that.
    @Thread
    The basic idea is to park the domain and catch the request uri using htaccess and redirect the request to the second domain. If your hosting provider allows you to park another domain on a domain, you can catch the domain that is being requested (unless, it is godaddy. They are smart enough to disable such apache rules), and redirect those requests permanently to the second domain. Hope it helps.

    I think namecheap can do 301 redirect for you in the control panel?

    Thread is a bit old but https://internetbs.net/ allows you to do this.
    You could forward your email to anywhere and forward domain1.com to domain2.com or whatever. All without hosting.

    In short you need to check out your registrar, not your hosting. ;)

    Hope this helps.

    301 is a permanent redirection. You do it on page.
    If you do it thru your registrar the DNS gets updated.

    End result is the same but there are differences as I understood it. One thing to remember is to avoid chained redirection, it is not good for rankings.
