Ok, I can't find this exact situation here, so here it goes...
We have a website at somedomain.US
At the time this was put up, someone else owned the .COM and .NET versions of the domain.
This .US has been running now for 6 months or so..
but, we have now purchased the .COM and .NET versions of this domain!
So, my company wants now the .COM to be the domain everyone knows.
What is the best way to do this? (in order of what I am guessing...)
1) Get hosting at the .COM and move the actual website (a CMS) to the .COM and then forward the .US to the .COM via 301?
2) Forward the .COM via 301 to the .US - but this would show the .US ultimately, which would seem confusing if we are advertising .com now
3) #2, but with masking - but my understanding is this is bad for bookmarking, and has other issues
4) Or... another way???
As you see, usually this question is about a main domain already active, and pointing others to it. In this case, the new domain is the perferred. Thanks for any thought
