How long does it take to move current squarespace domain to new squarespace site?

Hi there, we have built a new 7.1 website and we are ready to move our 7.0 site using the nativewest.com domain name over to the newly built site. Is this process instant or will it take days? Will the domain still be accessible to our customers the whole time or is there downtime?

 

Thanks!

If the domain is hosted on Squarespace it should move pretty seemlessly, it is generally quick, and you shouldn't see too much disruption. Best advise it to start the process during your website's lowest traffic time.

Hi @AnnaB12. Make sure to do 301 redirects pointing old content to new content. For example, /seed-management is indexed, but is a 404 on the new site. Keep an eye on Google Search Console.
