Changing existing host mapping

    Hey Chris,

    Some hosting companies will let you do a 301 redirect from the the DNS admin settings, without needing to have hosting or an .htaccess file. If yours doesn't, you might want to consider hosting a tiny .htaccess file on the old domain to handle the redirects to the new domain. 

    I also think there's a way to point your domain at your new hosting services to 'park' the domain there and then you could have an .htaccess file there, but I don't really know *how* that'd be done. I try to fiddle with domain settings as little as possible.
