How to redirect an entire website

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I need some advice. 

I want to change my website's domain name, but I don't want to lose all the backlinks from the old domain. Essentially, I'm taking my business from thesuitest.co to thesuitest.com. I have tons of pages and subpages because my website is a digital magazine, so creating individual redirects seems like tedious work that's going to take a lot of time. I'm also not even sure if I can redirect the .co links to .com in Squarespace once I change the domain there. Would I have to do that on my server?

So what I am wondering is: is there any solution to redirect all of the old links to the new one? (I will obviously keep the .co domain so that this redirect will be possible) And how do I go about doing this? I just don't really know where to start with this project.

Any help or resources or advice is appreciated!

This is very straightforward. Firstly, don't remove the old domain. Leave it connected to the website.

Add the new domain to the website and, when it has fully propagated (usually after 48 hours), set it as the Primary Domain. Whenever someone reaches a URL using the old domain, they'll automatically be redirected to the same page using the new domain.

Simply link both domains to your website, set your preferred domain as the primary domain.
