I have four domain names and three of them are parked and point to one domain. I brought them all at the time when cybersquatting was very active but now there are so many tld options around I was going to let two of them expire.
I will be left with two domain names ( the same name just a different tld ) and up until now I have not bothered about Google rank etc. as it is just a reference site and I was not really bothered if anyone found it or not.
Now looking into it I can see parked domains are not a good idea and so I was going to setup a redirect but I can not find the answer to a basic question:
Can you redirect a domain name on its own or does it have to be hosted on a server? For example do I need to setup a one page website with a redirect on it?
It may not make any difference but the website is on a VPS.
