URL Redirect record
URL Redirect is not a native DNS record type. Specifying URL Redirect for a hostname creates an underlying A record that directs the name to our URL Forwarding servers. These servers then perform an HTTP 301 redirect to the URL you specify in the address field. You can specify only the domain name to go to, or a full path to a specific file.
Example URL Redirect record formats:
New Site — http://www.geeksters.com
Original Site – http://myblogsite.com
Note that after redirecting, the target URL will show in the browser’s URL text box.
If a user specifies a path or filename after the domain name when requesting a host that is URL Redirected, that path information is intelligently appended to the destination URL. In the example above, if a user had entered “www.myblogsite.com/mobando.html” in a browser, this would redirect to “http://www.geeksters.com/mobando.html”.
Advanced users: The default HTTP code returned for the redirect is 302 (“HTTP 302 Found”). To change the code to 301 (“HTTP 301 Moved Permanently”), add the parameter “redir_mode=301” to your redirect address. To change the example above to use a 301 code instead of the default, you would use: http://www.myblogsite.com/redir_mode=301. If the destination URL already has querystring parameters, use the ampersand (“&”) instead of question mark (“?”).
