Moving to the new domain
- views 1299
Hi! I am moving to a new domain from my old one, but the structure and content of the new site is completely different from the old, even though the theme is the same. To solve the problem, I`m using 301 redirects and then, as I understand it, there are two ways forward: First way: Make the whole redirect from the old site to the new (URL on the old site redirects to the same URL on the new) and on the new website set up a redirect from pages with the old structure to the corresponding page with a new structure - (this is the advice of Yandex Technical Support.)
But then there are two problems: 1) On the old site there are 2000 pages but only 200 are needed. Only the ones with necessary info and good SEO rankings will be transferred. The result - a huge number of 404 errors. 2) Double redirects, and as a result there will be a long wait time. A dot redirect of the necessary pages - Basically I would have to redirect every page idividually. But will parameters such as PageRank and Alexa Rank then be lost, as well as search engine ranking for the new site? Thank you in advance!Answers (1)From our experience - it`s better to set up dot redirects than to have double redirects. For example, from oldsite.com/page.html to newsite.com/catalog/page.html. But please note that if new page has different content, and other Title + Description, then search engines will not connect with relevance of pages and will not return them to their former SEO rankings according to the old key words.

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.
For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.
CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.
Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.
Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.
OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.
Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.
Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.
Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.
DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.
Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.
ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.
The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.
Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
