I am sure this has been asked at some point but I would like to not only have my site redirected, but I would like for users trying to locate specific post content be re-directed to the corresponding permalink on the new site. Is this possible?
OR if your old domain now redirects to the New domain, you could add redirects like /spiderman.html to /marvel-heroes/spiderman/ or /batman.html to /dc-heroes/batman/ etc.
That is about all you can really do. Redirecting the root of a domain to another site is best done at your domain registrar (or host) – redirect the Domain to the new Domain… then you can redirect fragment pages (ones that don’t have matching URL structure on the new site) to the correct URL on the new site.
Hope that makes sense – it is a little difficult to explain fully sometimes.
I appreciate all the info. Since you were so kind to give so much info, I will be a little more specific with what I am trying to do and I saw that you explained the registrar level may be the best fit.
I imported all of the content from the old site into the new site so that now the only URL difference between the two would be the root domain. The posts permalinks are identical.
I wish to redirect users from the old domain to the new one but have never done this before.
I will be working with cPanel or FTP if you have any knowledge you can throw at me.
