Difference between domain forwarding (from registrar) vs. htaccess 301 (on hosting)? I came across a couple threads that suggest to build links on to a 'buffer site', then 301 all links to money site. By doing this, if money site A gets banned/penalized, I can simply 301 redirect all existing links to money site B fairly quickly. If that's the case, should I just do 301 redirect thru domain registrar panel (domain forwarding), or should I first add it to my hosting first, then apply htaccess 301 redirect? Does it make a difference?
