Hi again,

Actually, the redirect-check will only pick up redirected domains, not 
framed or cloaked ones. In those cases it will say something like:

"Either example.com is NOT REDIRECTING to any URL or the redirect is NOT 

If you use checkdns.net (please make sure you have "maximum detail" 
option selected), you'll get this reading under "CheckDNS.NET verifies 
www servers":

"Received: HTTP/1.1 200 OK (Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0) 1fb .Your browser 
does not support frames. We recommend upgrading your browser.. Click . 
here. to enter the site.."

If the domain is simply redirected you'll get this reading:

"Received: HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently (Server: Apache) Location: 
Your main page redirects to another location. Several search engines 
will be unable to index your site."

Hope that helps!
