After I tried to use GoDaddy to forward my old domain to my new domain using 301 redirect and test if t works, I found out that if you connect to the old domain for the first time after a while, it returns 302 found first with the same url! When you try it for the second time, it returns 301 redirect correctly. After noticing that, I just switched back to using my own server for redirection.
Here are the sample outputs of another domain that I have set to use 301 redirect in GoDaddy:

Here is a simple Apache/PHP heroku app using mod_rewrite to do 301 redirect an old domain to a new one:
You can edit the
.htaccess file inside of the
web/ folder to specify the old domain and the new domain to redirect to.
Today I checked www.GoDaddy.com and it is offering $0.99 .info domain for sale again! Cool, I grabbed some .info domains after seeing that. You can just buy the domain by itself for $0.99 without buying any extra stuff with godaddy!
Right now www.GoDaddy.com is offering $1.49 .info domain for sale! Right now it’s even cheaper than namecheap.com! I immediately grabbed some .info domains after seeing that. You actually don’t need to buy anything extra along with the domain to get that price. You can just buy the domain by itself for $1.49!
Today I searched “tipspedia.info” in google and found some sites that contain an excerpt of my previous post that says “today I got the domain tipspedia.info……….” (which I deleted) along with other posts’ excerpts. Some of those websites were http://askthewebhost.net/blogs/ftp-hosting, http://www.propraetor.com/ftp_hosting/, http://paypal-coupon-code.zzdeals.com/, and http://trusted-info-net.com/blogs/yahoo-domain-hosting. On the right side of those websites come a list of other posts and mostly important, ads from adsense.
At first I was curious about why they do that until I see the ads over there, they do that because they want people to click their ads, those guys collect excerpts of posts by doing google blog search with some high paying keywords for the ads and put them together so that the search engine show their website more often, most of them shows a link for the original posts on every posts, but some won’t! Some of them even label the ads with misleading labels like “my websites”. That sucks, they’re like using our posts for their ad purposes.
