So my client wants to add google search console in the website. The site has been migrated from http://www.somedomain.com to http://www.somenewdomain.com.

Everything from the old site redirects to the new one. I have put a verification file in the root of new website what should I do to cater those redirects?

Should I create a new one? Don't seem to understand this.
