Apologies if I misuse any technical terminology - self taught and trying to manage this domain change.
I’ve had a domain purchased externally but hosted on netlify for over a year now. The website is https://amtsimplified.com
I now want to migrate everything over to a new domain https://equitysimplified.com
Both domains are purchased from the same external site. Both are added as domains on netlify.
In my site setup on Netlify, I have added the new equitysimplified.com as a custom domain, and set it as my primary domain. In addition, on the _redirect file in my hugo config (I use hugo to package/build the site) I have included the line below per this support question.
https://amtsimplified.com/* https://equitysimplified.com/:splat 301!
I don’t think the _redirect file ever did anything. Ever since adding my custom domain and setting it as my primary domain, https://www.amtsimplified.com/* redirects to equitysimplified just fine.
https://amtsimplified.com/* does not, however, redirect to equitysimplified either. Is there something I’m missing?
Lastly, and this is completely separate, I believe I’ve set everything up so it should minimally impact SEO (via 301 redirects?). Could someone confirm that doing this shouldn’t affect it?
