One of my friends just lost his domain. I don't really know the reason why, but he can't ever get it back.
His website is re-created to a new domain. Without access to the old domain, we can't even set up appropriate HTTP statuses like 410 or 301. We can no longer access the Google Search Console to make things quicker.
The old domain returns an error now but is still showing up in the search results before the new domain even on brand keywords. Is there any way of speeding up the de-indexing of the old domain?
