You want to redirect your old domain to a new once?
No problem, most of the domain providers are giving you the epossibility to redirect to a new one. What is missing, however, is the ability to continue accepting HTTPS connections. Without an SSL certificate for the old domain, requests to https://yourolddomain.com will stop working, after setting up a simple URL-redirect rule! For many returning visitors, however, this URL is still in their browser history. So these requests end up in the void! Cloudflare can help you out, to keep old domains working:
root Domain (@) with invalid IP-Address 192.0.2.0 www Domain with invalid IP-Address 192.0.2.0
Goto Cloudflare –> yourolddomain.com –> SSL/TLS
As 192.0.2.0 dosen’t create any valid ssl results, we choose to flexible to accept unencrypted results.
