oh right, yeah that makes sense. I suppose i was thinking I could redirect the old domain to the new domain, but then if they went to internal pages they wouldnt get redirected.
Here's what I'm going to do.
Going to leave old-domain.com hosted on my server for about 3 months. From that domain I want to add a rule in the htaccess file that will redirect to the new-domain. But i also need a rule to handle the redirection if the user enters via a subpage, subsection and I'll want it to redirect to the same page on the new domain.
So, for example, visiting old-domain.com/subpage2/somepage/ would redirect to new-domain.com/subpage2/somepage/ == essentially the same page but on the new domain. And of course, we also want to redirect all traffic from the homepage to the new-domain.com homepage.
Will the rule you sent me there handle all of that too?
