I think that some domainers still do not understand very well How to select 301 or 302 redirect for domain forwarding and masking. So it will be more clear now with this article.
You can forward or mask a domain name to redirect to another domain of your choosing. When specifying the information for redirecting the page, you can use either a 301 or 302 redirect.
If you are redirecting your domain to a web site A 301 redirect sends people to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a “301 Moved Permanently” HTTP response. The HTTP 301 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has permanently moved.
A 302 redirect sends people to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a “302 Found” HTTP response. The HTTP 302 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has temporarily moved.
It means that:
+ Domain forwarding or masking with 301 redirect can provide a long-term solution to point your domains to business or affiliate sites.
+ Domain forwarding or masking with 302 redirect points your domain to a temporary page while you build your permanent web site. The specific redirects help the search engines distinguish how long your web site information will be located at its current location.
