Hi all,
I don't know this is the correct place to post this thread. If wrong, sorry. Actually, we have changed our site's URL. Our previous site is 1 year 11 months old. And we have registered a new URL for my site this month. So, this site might be getting affected by the sand box, aging delay and all. I will redirect my old domain into my new domain. My doubt is, if I redirect my old site into new site, will my new site URL get my old site's URL age. ie, my new site URL age is considered as 1 year and 11 months? Any other things will be happening if I do redirection?

If you use a 301 permanent redirect all the value from your old domain should be assigned to the new domain once the search engines pick up the redirect. Just make sure you use a 301 redirect and not a 302.

If you are on Windows, I know that IIS will move the user automatically - for example, your old domain is www.example.com and your new one is www.example.net.

You have a file www.example.com/foldername/filename.asp?123 - IIS can be set up to do a 301 redirect to www.example.net/foldername/filename.asp?123 automatically. I am sure that htaccess can do the same thing if needed
