can you explain your thought process on why it is better to handle w/ DNS than Hugo?
my understanding was that 301s get penalized by search engines. since the purpose of the permalink would be to help SEO, i thought maybe a hugo alias (relevant code below for ease of reference) would be more SEO friendly than a 301 - but I really know nothing about what is considered a best practice.
Penalizing redirects would be a bit like the IRS sending you a bill for updating your mailing address. You have something that both organizations want; you are helping them by telling them how to get it.
