DOMAIN RE-DIRECT
Re-directing, otherwise known as pointing one or more domains to a web site is a work around most often used to point domains to web space which is not actually hosting your domain name - which is most often the case in free web space. It is often also used incorrectly to point secondary domains to the primary domain instead of setting the secondary domain up on the server side as a Domain Alias. While both methods work mechanically speaking, many search engines, including Google, do not like pointing and redirects.
