Submitted by admin on Fri, 07/07/2023 - 21:01

Now, most people understand that the word domain refers to a website address, but some do not understand the other words or jargon associated with the term domain. Here's a quick look at two popular domain terms in case you or someone you know can help. Domain redirection and masking

Domain redirection helps redirect sitelinks to another site address. And domain forwarding is useful for longer, more complex websites and for advertising purposes. For example, you use a new domain such as MarchSale2007(dot)com to drive traffic to a specific sales web page. The submission process is very simple. Start by registering a new available domain name of your choice. Then go to the domains area where you purchased the domain and click on the option to forward this new domain. There should be space for the URL or domain name of the site that visitors will be directed to when they click the link. Domain masking allows you to hide or protect your website address while allowing customers to visit your site and access your content. Domain masking works as follows.

- Register a domain name first. For example, register the domain name TinyURL(dot)com or a domain of your choice. Then, as above, click the mask box in the control area to mask it and add a masked descriptive meta tag and a hidden words meta tag key to helping search engines find their way when people enter these terms. - TinyURL(dot)com is the visual address for people who click on the link, but it is not the main Internet address for the websites, because the main URL is too long and contains too many characters to include in a print ad , such as MyDomainNameIsTooLong. . (dot) Com. Therefore, the TinyURL(dot)com masked domain address is included in e-mails, advertisements and other communications to direct Internet visitors to the site. Also, visitors to the site must enter TinyURL(dot)com to find the full content of the parent address at MyDomainNameIsTooLong(dot)com on their computer.

The key difference between domain redirection and domain masking is that domain redirection allows your website visitors to see your original or real domain name in their browser after they click on a link to your new domain and visit your site- the That is, the new domain link does not hide the original long name. So when people click on TinyURL(dot)com, they go to your site, but after they go to your site, the domain that appears in their browser is MyDomainNameIsTooLong(dot)com. Why would you want to mask your original address instead of driving traffic to your site? In this case:

Some website addresses are very long and full of numbers and letter codes that you may not understand. Example: http://ThisIsYourAffiliateLinkabczyx12379_JohnSmith(dot)com . To make links more readable and professional, Internet marketers can hide short domains like http://JohnSmithNews(dot)com for two reasons. Leave the Site immediately and contact the primary seller and (2) use your recognized name as an address to make the Site professional and memorable.
