This is not a wordpress specific question but surely someone here has done the same thing as I am needing to do very soon.
I have oldone.com which has many links to it from the rest of the web
I created a multisite called main.net with a subdomain prepared as newone.main.net to which all the posts, pages and images from oldone.com will be imported.
I know how to do all of the above.
What I don't know is where exactly do I make the reference to tell the world that everything from oldone.com can now be found forever at newone.main.net ?
Of course I want all the permalinks to keep working so that this:
would now exist at
I'm hoping that I do not have to maintain a site at oldone.com forever with some redirect code but that some magic DNS reference can make it happen with zero maintenance. The intention is that anyone who clicked on a link to oldone.com would be automatically transported to the corresponding page on the new site with no delays or messages.
Also, I'm willing to "own" the domain name oldone.com forever if necessary.
I think this is a routine thing but have never had to do it before now. Thanks for your expert advice!
