I originally posted this as one of the defining questions for the site so I thought I'd ask it again.

Currently I have DNS for both domains pointing to the same place but I'd like to set up a permanent redirect from the old one to the new one for any lingering links out in the wild.

This page lists how to do it using common web languages. Note the section entitled "Redirect Old domain to New domain"

Also, Google has provided a nice article on what to consider when moving your site.

    Also of note, Google allows you to submit a redirect notice directly to them through Google's webmaster tools. This give them more than just a 301 redirect. It tells them I was over here and now I am over there. Jul 8, 2010 at 21:10
