Before doing this, let’s see about some lines about domain redirect.
What is Domain Redirect
Domain redirection or Domain Forwarding is actually pointing an other domain into a domain. Hard to understand! Ok, let’s make it simple. Suppose, you have a domain name. And you have purchased a new domain name just now. But you don’t want to make a full website with content in the new purchased domain.
But also you don’t want to keep the new domain unused. So you are thinking to do something by which if someone click on your new domain name, your old domain I mean your website will open automatically. That means, you functioned two domains for one website. This is called domain redirection.
Why We do Domain Redirects
We do domain redirects for a certain purpose. To forward a domain into a other domain we do domain rediret. It’s has many advantages. People can go the website using two domains insted of one. It helps to increase users and SEO.
Is Big Companies do Domain Redirection?
Yes! Actually big brand do this more than individuals. Like Facebook, let’s check it. Facebook normal URL is www.facebook.com. When a user want to open facebook, he/she has to type the full url like www.facebook.com or facebook.com in the browser. But a lot of users will be bored to do this, that’s why facebook has redirected it’s new short domain like fb.com to it’s original URL www.facebook.com. Now a user get bored typing long url, he/she can input the short domain name fb.com and can use Facebook!
Most of the big brand companies buy more than one domains and they redirect the new domain names to the old domain. This is the way to increase users and help users to reduce time for using.
