    Do i have to do URL masking with every URL redirect?

    i asked my domain registrar to do a 301 redirect for me, but he didn't know what 301 redirect was and he says we will do URL forwarding in the domain control panel. (by the way i don't have access to the control panel)

    so is the URL forwarding in the domain control panel is considered a 301 redirect?



    Thanks in advance for your constructive comments and answers.

    It has been discussed many times.

    Also if you don't have access to your CP then you should consider changing hosts.

    Is it necessary? Yes if you want to really make some serious money it is absolutely necessary I have a domain that I redirect to a cb product and if you don't really pay attention closely you won't even notice the redirect because I had my sister go to my site and she had to visit the site about 5 times before she could see the page redirecting I have a little trick I use to fool people so they hardly notice it. To answer the other question yes in my opinion a 301 redirect is the same as domain forwarding but I prefer the redirect.
