Domain Forwarding
Forwarding at registrar level vs. htaccess

 6:58 pm on Apr 8, 2010 (gmt 0)

I have a client that owns a bunch of domain names that they want forwarded to another domain. Unfortunately their registrar charges $20/year per domain for this service which I have seen free pretty much everywhere else.

If I instead point all these domains at this other website and then do a 301 redirect with htaccess, will there be any unintended consequences, with search engines for instance?

IMHO it would be easier and cheaper to move registrar, that's a rip off!

It sure is, but I doubt it would be easier. My client is a relatively big company, so there would be a lot of inertia against moving.

The registrar is one of the biggest and oldest around and I suppose that's how they can get away with such robbery.

so there would be a lot of inertia against moving.

I bet when you tell them they could save $2,000.00 for every 100 domains they own they'd soon listen:-)

Don't tell me they're also paying $15-20 per name as well?
