    Hello all,

    I just bought mysite.co.uk of mysite.com website.

    It is a wordpress blog about the U.K. and I was debating on how to take things?

    What is a smarter idea and how should I take things?

    A) Redirect the .co.uk to the .com?
    or
    B) use the same nameservers of my hosting on both domain names?

    If you wish for the UK site to have different content than the main site, then I suggest setting up both domain names to your hosting account. However if you only bought the domain for the sake of having the domain, then I would suggest setting up a redirect.

    Redirect the .co.uk to the .com.

    If these are white hat, then join google webmaster stools and add both sites, then tell it you changed the address form co.uk to .com using the change of address feature - this will improve your site's reputation and the redirect won't look spammy.
