My client has had a site on a domain for the last year and now because of a copyright issue they have to change the domain and I am unsure of the best way to handle this.
The have bought the new domain and the nameservers are pointing to the hosting space and obviously the hosting company can now change it so the website comes up for the new domain.
BUT how do we notify Google, etc that it is the same site but just a new domain? I think we need a 301 redirect somewhere (assume htaccess) but if the old domain no longer has its own space how does this work?
