Please note:
Frame redirect allows you to mask the domain you are forwarding to and allows you to enter a title and meta keywords and descriptions. This way, if you have a Frame Redirect for domain.com to google.com, when someone tries to view domain.com, the URL will still say domain.com, but the page that loads will be the Google page.
