I have a client who currently has their website hosted with Moonfruit.
I've developed a new WordPress site for the client that I'll be launching next week, but need to transfer the domain to my registrar today.
Once the domain has successfully transferred to my registrar, I'll be pointing the domain to a holding page on my server until the new site is ready.
So that I don't lose any efforts made on SEO, I'd like to set up 301 redirects. These redirects will point to the new pages.
Until the site is ready, where do I point the 301 redirects? Should I create temporary pages on the new server for the 301 re-directs until the new site is launched?
It's necessary for me to transfer the domain now so that DNS propagation is resolved before we launch the new site. I can't migrate the old site to my server because it's hosted with Moonfruit.
