I just heard about "DNF" cloaking and must say, I havn`t heard that term before. Does anybody know, what that is or what DNF stands for? I`m familiar with cloaking,...only the DNF confuses me. Domain Name Forwarding?!?! I have no idea. :)

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld jabz :)

I'm afraid I haven't heard of the term either. A quick search for "DNF cloaking" on Google revealed nothing.

Hmmm, ok. Thanks for your reply. I have checked Google before but couldn`t find anything either. OK,...I keep my ears open...If I get more information, I let you know. Thanks.

Best Regards, Jab

Domain Name Forwarding

I believe that is the DNF part.

Isn't this referring to URI Cloaking and/or URI Masking?

hmm .. if DNF means domain name forwarding, then it simply looks like URI redirection .. one can do this from managed domain control panel .. some 301 redirections can be done from htaccess ...

but personally I never heard of DNF Cloaking ... may be just simple URI redirection ... any answers?
