    Please share your experience / encounters.

    Domain name registrars such as Go*Daddy.c0m allow users to buy a domain name and do a redirect to another URL or domain. So for example, if I bought
    MyNewDomain.com, I could go to the domain management area in my account and redirect this new domain to OneOfMyOldDomains.com.

    You can even "mask" the redirect so that after a visitor arrives at OneOfMyOldDomains.com, they will still see MyNewDomain.com in their browser address bar.

    How have your experiences been with regards to such redirect / masking features?

    Would you think that this is a feature that all domain name registrars provide or it depends?

    Thanks in advance for sharing.

    Most of them provide this service - it is using either a 301 or 302 redirect - I usually prefer to redirect using other methods -

    Here is an example - with this example - you will get redirected 3 times - one using htaccess - once using meta - and once using java - I use this site to set up redirections for other sites
