I have a website hosted with a company that is in liquidation. It's a bespoke site for our business. Luckily, I am almost finished with a new Wordpress site that should go live in a week or two.
My original website has a decent amount of relevant backlinks, PR and organic traffic. I wanted to use re-directs to our new site to pass that 'juice' to the new website. The old website is a .co.uk whereas the new website is a .com if that matters.
My question is this....do I have to have a 'copy' of old website and host it in order to use re-directs properly or is there some other technical means to do this without getting hosting for the 'old' site? So far, my emails are not going answered and I can't get ahold of them and am freaking out a bit.
I just want to ensure that my new site is properly set up with the re-directs from the old site and apparently they aren't/cant' help! Luckily, I have changed them from being the domain registrar. Those are being held with Namecheap.
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated!
