Domain redirect Plugin

This plugin loads at Joomla! startup and checks if the domain used in the URL matches the one specified in the parameters. If it does not, the plugin gracefully redirects the visitor to the exact same URL, replacing the domain with the preferred one.

Useful if you can't (or won't) modify your .htaccess files for Apache redirection. Or if you can't write Rewrite Rules, just like me…

I wanted to get rid of using rewrite rules and hardcoded redirections inside template.
Previously used plugin was only capable of redirecting traffic between www/non www addresses, and stumbled upon a problem of having two domains pointing to same content.

This plugin not only redirects all incoming visitors to root domain, taking care about duplicated content. It also handles redirection from/to www subdomain. And most important, works with J!3x.

Big thanks for this simple but powerful plugin.

Thanks for the nice review! And thanks for testing woth J!3, I have had no time for this so it's really cool :-)

Does what is says: the plugin redirects the visitor to the exact same URL, replacing the domain with the preferred one. Very handy when they use an url from google search results. With the plugin they are redirected to exactly the same page on the new website but with the new url.
With a 301 redirect they all end up on your new homepage and have to find again the page they were looking for.

And not to forget: you can exclude the olddomain.com/administrator, so you always have access to the old site and the plugin!

Many thanks for making this.
