I had my old website at the********.in and shifted to a .org domain. I also switched the hosting company. Here's what I did -
- I drove all traffic from old site to the new one with 301 permanent redirects using the htaccess.
- I confirmed the address change successfully in Google Webmasters tools.
- The redirection works fine.
So the old htaccess is still at my old host for over a month now.
How long do I need to keep that account for the search results to redirect properly? I assume the redirection will break if I close my previous account. Is it safe to do so now that sufficient time has passed and I practically don't see any old address in the search results any more?
