Hey, so I am moving an existing domain from Squarespace to Webflow.
The site has been completely redesigned in Webflow and the URL structure is different. When I change the DNS settings to point to the Webflow site, do I have to only set up the 301 redirects in the Webflow panel?
i.e. /location/wellington -> /wellington
Also, are there any best practices to follow/ problems that could arise? This site depends on organic, so I need to make sure I get this right…
Here is my current strategy:
- map all the existing URLs of the old site and create a corresponding url on the new site
- add all of the redirects in the hosting tab of the project settings
- change the dns records
Anything I am missing?
- i.e. what will happen if I have different Meta Title’s / Descriptions etc…
