Can you effectively 301 an expired domain from registrar instead of host?

    An expired domain is clean but isn't indexed yet. Will search engines still pick it up if you 301 it directly to your money site from a registrar? Would this be just as effective as a 301 redirect from a host? Ty.

    You say expired domain isn't indexed yet? That's no need to 301 it at all.

    Last time I 301┬┤ed directly from namecheap it ended up being a no-follow link according to ahrefs.

    Ok...

    301 redirects haven't been working much for quite some time now. It takes weeks or months to see effect and more often than not, you don't even see any. Unless you are redirecting some 300RD brutal domain, then don't even bother and rather use it as a PBN.

    In addition, you want to redirect it from registrar? Non-indexed domain about which Google doesn't know shit. Sure. Even if you redirect directly from hosting, without anything else, you won't see shit for an effect. To do 301 properly, you are supposed to host site, put a few articles with the, preferably, same keyword on it. Let it rest for a month or two and get some natural rank. And THEN you can 301 it. And even after you do all this, you may not see any effect.
