But so does www.tlbtlb.com - and neither redirects to the other. Which is what this thread is about, as it could get you into trouble with Google. If you can't control this, ask your host to do it for you.

This works against this forum. We have a server that accepts with and without the www. And we have a forwarder using dtpfor.com.

In the world of the World Wide Web we have the Wayback Machine to keep that permanent record for ever and ever.

Default Forwarding count as duplicate?

http://www.19130.biz/ forwards to
http://www.fairmountcivicassociation.org
and so does
http://www.fairmountca.org
but the content is only in one place. Is there any problem with Google with this situation?

I have forwarding by the domain name company for http://www.19130.biz/ but
forwarding by the web hosting company for http://www.fairmountca.org
where they call it parking and charge $4.

Yes, that is exactly the situation that requires action. fairmountca.org did not work when I tried it, but the first two domains show identical content with different urls.

Default Forwarding

http://www.fairmountca.org does work for me. The initial name was the long one, but the association board insisted on having the shorter name, too. I really don't see any way to drop either name now.

http://www.19130.biz is a different situation, and that one can be changed. I suppose the web hosting company can provide a generic parked page instead of forwarding.
