A while ago I registered the domain paulturner.me for
a few reasons:

  1. I don’t really like the hyphen in paul-turner.net.
  2. It’s a little more personal.
  3. I currently don’t own paul-turner.net.  (It’s owned by my web hosting company, although I have the option to purchase it)

Currently http://paulturner.me/ redirects back to http://paul-turner.net/ although I have been considering a swap over for some time now.

If I do this my thoughts are to use mod_rewrite with a single PHP program that accepts all the requests from http://paul-turner.net/ and responds with a permanent redirect to the same page on http://paulturner.me/.

Are there any implications in doing this?  I would think that this approach would update all the search engines over time.

What do you think?  Leave me a comment.

  1. Makes a lot of sense to use .me – I’m on .co.uk because it’s cheap, but it does have the wrong (commercial) connatation
