I have a 20 year old domain that is dying. Let call it domain-a.com.
I have a new domain I would like to use, it is domain-b.com
This is was a WP membership based site, now will be a WP ecom site.
Here is where it gets sticky...
I want to restructure the entire site, using the original as a mere shadow of the structure.
A few cornerstone content pages will be saved but the urls totally changed.
Many of the blog posts will be retained, but URLs changed.
My plan is to 301 the home page, then use a redirect plugin to pick away at each url.
The two domains will reside on the same VPS server, but domain-a.com will slowly be decommissioned page by page.
It's only about 300 pages and overplayed content will be culled.
The new site will be cleaner, faster and completely mobile friend, whereas the old site is a pile of outdated scripts.
Just want to pass this by the knowledgeable folks here and this will be a major experiment in what happens when you do a complete makeover. Any suggestions?
