    Rather than revive this thread http://www.webdesignforums.net/threa...728-org.33643/ , I decided to start a new one. Basically, among other things I have my web host rerouting everything from 1728.com to 1728.org.

    Any other suggestions?

    So you own BOTH .com and .org?
    If so, you can have them both pointing at the same server location (your website).
    You don't need to "reroute" .... but not sure what you mean by that.

    Yes, I own both .com and .org (as well as .biz and about 6 other "1728" names).
    I guess I should have stated that all .com traffic is being transferred through a 301 redirect to 1728.org.
    What exactly do you mean by both could be pointed to the same server location?
    What is the advantage of that?

    Some search engines give precedence of .com over .org. A 301 is meant as a temporary thing and search engines will follow , but if let in place for a long time, they will quit indexing both.

    By pointing both ahost records at the same physical server space, your site will likely get indexed better, since the domain names are the same. If they were different names pointed at the same space, you could get hit with duplicate content penalties.

    With your webhost, you can list the domain names that you will be pointing to
    your website. Your webhost needs to know that because your domain names
    may or may not be registered with them. Your webhost will provide a primary
    and secondary server name that you will give to your domain name host.

    So, with your domain name host, you give them the primary and secondary
    server names of the webhost, for each of your domain names.

    Example, I might have my website hosted with 1&1.com ... but my 4 domain
    names (.com, .net, .biz, .org) are hosted by Network Solutions. I have to tell
    1&1 which 4 domain names will be pointing to my website. And, I also have
    to tell Network Solutions what the server names are for 1&1.com

    If your webhost AND domain name(s) are registered with the same company,
    they usually do this all for you automatically.
