multiple domain names to same site

Postby noworyz » Mon Jun 04, 2007 12:09 am

I was wondering the best process for having multiple domain names point to the same site. The second domain is mainly used for misspelling.

I understand that it would be considered duplicate content to have the exact same pages so what is the bet thing to do?

Thanks

When I started my site at first I read an e-book that said that you should get as many domain names as possible and link them all to your main site. I did this ad got banned from Google, until I removed the other domain names.

I would not risk it.

Perhaps you could just put a landing page on the mis-spelt domain and put on something like you have landed "here" instead of "here" if you want to go to "here" then please click here :wink:

I'm sure you get the drift :wink:

your solution makes sense but I think it is crazy that multiple domains is a bad thing. even google has more than one domain. .com and .net go to .com

They are the same domain with a different extension!

If all the domain names that you have are identical, but end with .com .co.uk .info .net etc. then I cannot see a problem with it.

For my site I have .co.uk and .eu and they both point to my site!

If this is bad then I will change the .eu once it has been confirmed, but I feel that this is OK.

how about google.com and gooogle.com

they both go to google.com so it must be possible.

I am actually reading some stuff that says you can do it with 301 redirects via apache mod rewrite

You will be able to that, and there are a few people on here that will know the code to use ( I don't ) :?

Perhaps it ok to do it with mis-spelt domains as long as you do not have loads of different domain names pointing to the same site?

i'm hoping so. This seems to be quite the common thing to do so there has to be some sort of way to do this without penalty

You can use the www prefix redirection, method number two.

It will redirect anything linked to this server but the domain mentioned, with or without the www prefix.

ok, so if I have domain1.com and domain2.com, I need to point both domains to the same site and then use htaccess to redirect domain2 to domain1?

an I use domain alias to get the 2nd domain pointed at the first domain and then do the .htacess for the redirect on the domain1 website

or where exactly do I define the .htaccess for the second domain?

Well, would be better to start or reply to another topic here I think.

The principle won't be to redirect domain1 to domain2 but to redirect anything but domain2, eg domain1 but not only, all cases at once, all domains + www prefix ;)

ok, i'm a little confused :? :D

lets say I have an existing website with mydomain.com

I want to register another domain name to catch a common misspelling. SO i register the new name and want it 301 redirected to the existing domain?

what are the steps to go through to accomplish this? (might as well start form the beginning)

Here is what I want to know...

How the heck does the guy at gokartsrus.com and go-cartsrus.com get away with this??

These two sites have mirror content, but he is VERY well indexed and very well ranked in his niche.

Ok, I was confused on that too as this was my topic to begin with on what I thought was the same subject. Where should I create a new topic at?
