Hi

I have registered a domain and set it to point to another domain using this service which is provided by the company I registered with:

Non framed web forwarding (Uncloaked)
"The destination URL will remain in the browser's address bar. This option also allows you to forward to a specific file e.g. http://www.example.co.uk/search.html"

Is this a 301 redirect? Or is it something else? There is no mention of 301 anywhere on the sites faqs.

If it is not 301 then what is it, and is it going to be more harmful than helpful vis a vis SEO?

Thanks!

Sounds like a simple 301 redirect to me.

The easiest way to find out for sure is to use a tool that will show you the HEADERS of the page, which if it's redirected will give you a few headers before you get to the final content.

You can find out this using Firefox plugins or command line tools like CURL with a simple command "curl -Lv <domain>"
