    Domain "alias"-good or bad for SEO?

    I am having problems with redirecting the urls from one domain to a new domain on windows server.
    The web host has suggested adding the old domain as an alias to the new domain.
    I was wondering if this would be ok as far as google etc are concerned? I am worried about getting the site banned

    The second domain would be considered duplicate content and ignored by Google. I'd still try to find a way to do the redirect though. Better safe then sorry.

    Thank you, that's what I thought but wanted to hear it from someone who knows more than me!
