Factoid: Moving a website

Sunday 26 October 2008, 2.54am HKT


Tech-savvy and savvy tech people will tell you the right way to move a website or blog from one domain to another is via what is called a “301 Permanent Redirect.”

In layman’s terms, this means you set up a clean forwarding address from your old site to your new site. By using this approach, you don’t lose all the search-engine ‘love’ that you have pulled together.

Problem is, some sites don’t let you do a 301 Permanent Redirect from your old site to anywhere else.
