I’ve just setup a new hosting account with a .com.au and also a .com domain.
.com.au is the main domain, and we want the .com to redirect to .com.au, which we setup in the control panel.
How does dreamhost do this? Do they automatically create a .htaccess file with gives a 403 message and redirect to the main domain? I’ve heard that this is the best way to keep search engines happy, and I just want to make sure dreamhost’s default way of doing this doesn’t jeopardise anything.
Is there some way to make this happen… or is the only way to create an alias that forward the main to firstname.lastname@example.org
