I have a requirement where my company acquired another company now letís say our companyís website is www.home.com and the other companyís website is www.old.com . Now we want to change the domain of www.old.com to www.old.home.com i.e. use the sub domain of our current website.
I am thinking that if we create the sub domain at our end i.e. www.old.home.com and do the DNS switch at www.old.com then all the requests coming to this website will be redirected to the newly created sub domain i.e. www.old.home.com.
However, I donít know how efficient is this solution?
Also the old domain i.e. www.old.com is referred from many other websites from different domains, the old URL is embedded in different SAP systems too.
1) I believe that I am doing the DNS switch, so I think the old URLs donít need to be corrected on other systems be it SAP or other websites on different domains. Am I correct ?
2) The other websites have SSO feature so if someone is logged in www.diff.com and access www.old.com , today he doesnít have to login again, but do you think it will work automatically after DNS switch?
3) I know I need to consider SEO too, as it may have an impact on the ranking, could you tell me what would you suggest?
4) Also, can you tell me if you think I need to consider many other things as a part of this change?
