    I want to 301 redirect an expired domain to my existing domain for the purpose of a boost in serps.
    I am wondering, do I do this within godaddy (where I bought the expired domain) or do I need to host the domain somewhere and then do it through the host by uploading an htaccess file?

    I don't know if there's any way through godaddy, don't think so. But I always host it and 301 via htaccess like you mentioned.

    You can do it through godaddy. You don't need to host it anywhere.

    Godaddy has 301 domain re-directer. Use it. No need to host your domain anywhere. Look in the domain management.

    By expired domain, you mean you bought an expired domain right? I'm pretty sure any domain hoster has a redirect method.

    Pretty much summed it up perfectly.

    But most domain registars let you redirect, although I don't use GoDaddy.

    Yes, I use name.com and it has a function in domain management to do that, was not sure about godaddy. So, that's why I shared the alternative way. :)

    He needs to host the domain to be able to do that. Godaddy domains can be 301'd unhosted.

    You can do it in GoDaddy. For those domain registrars that you can't do it on and if you don't want to pay for hosting just to do a 301, get an Amazon route 53 account and do it there.
