URL Redirect Methods, Forwarders

301 Redirect

Search engines like Google prefer 301 (permanent) redirects. These redirects can be changed and erased as desired. The 302 (temporary) redirects behave similar to 301 redirects; however, they are less favored since they redirect visitors and search engines without updating the bookmark.

Masked Forward and HTML Forward

You can accomplish something similar to a masked forward in cPanel. This is known as a parked domain. Using this method, the parked domain name will show in the browser address bar while displaying your primary domain's website.
