    Hello Friends!
    I wonna ask you
    I have to change my domain name.
    I know how to make redirect and change robots.txt
    But other things I do not know well:
    1). Do I have to add my new domain name (which will be the main name) as a parked domain name or as an additional domain name.
    2). What should I do with hosting folders? Where do I have to put the files with redirect (.htaccess) to the new domain? Because I need to have redirect from every page of old domain (which is in the search engines database) to the corresponding page on the new domain.

    Hello :)

    It depends on the purpose of the new domain name. Parked domain names are documented at:

    Parked Domains

    Addon domain names are documented at:

    Addon Domains

    Please review these documents to determine which time of domain name best suites it's purpose.

    Thank you.
