Make sure you 301 redirect your .in pages to the new ones on .com. .com is considered a general domain which could be associated with any region. You can control this in Google Search Console under the legacy tool of "international targeting" then the Country tab. Opinion is that there is no real negative global impact on targeting a country.

HTTP redirects happen AFTER the TLS handshake. For the TLS handshake to be successful, the server has to present a valid certificate, having in it the hostname that is in the URL being accessed, otherwise browsers will show errors. So the rule is simple: as soon as you see an https:// URL, even if all accesses to it are finally redirected to another URL, ...

It is perfectly fine to do what you propose, as long as you do not do any domain masking. Here's a short yt video explanation.

In order for two servers to share the exact same domain (www.example.com) and your website to work properly the two servers would need to be a mirror of eachother in terms of content and functionality, ideally linked to the same databases and storage behind the scenes since the same user may access either server within the same session. This would be setup ...

ICANN 60 days rule. Well it's not apply in your case, since the domain is already register 5 year ago (not 60 days ago), and I've assume you've not change any detail from last 60 days. Domain transfer is really easy nowadays, it doesn't require time at all, you can transfer any domain name in only one day, or max two days. Also you can change anything you ...

The problem occurred because the domain was already mapped to another project. I just deleted the previous mapping and created a new mapping ans it solved the problem

Your best bet is to always register the domain right after checking it (if it's available). With a few billion people connected to the Internet, it's not uncommon that a few people come up with the same domain idea at the same time. In fact, on my recent search for the domain for a new project, I came across two interesting names that were just registered - ...

Should renewal price of gTLD will always be identical to the price of purchase? No, not in all cases. For at least the following reasons, which is certainly not an exhaustive list: gTLDs are started in phases, starting with a sunrise. Sunrise prices are often higher (but not always, Google Registry has lower sunrise prices than during standard ...

The pricing of a given domain depends on the registry and the registrars. Most registries have the same price for registration and renewal, but especially with new gTLDs, registries sometimes run promotional sales where first-year registration can be significantly cheaper. Also some ccTLDs have different prices, for example .pl costs 10 PLN to register and ...

Google doesn't provide any mechanism to transfer data between search console properties. If you want to be able to see the data from your prefix property, you can just keep that old one around. You'll be able to check the data in the old property and you'll be able to check the data in the new property. There is really no reason to delete the old prefix ...

You should be able to also add and verify the Domain Property too. You should also keep the verified prefix url property for linking to Google Analytics, if you are wanting to do that. If you do not delete the prefix url Property in GSC then you won't lose the data. What do you mean by: by I want to know how can I transfer the old account data to a ...

What does "Secure domain space" mean technically? Nothing specially, as this is not a technical specification. Here is what happens. 1) HSTS is a new standard, implemented by many browsers, that prohibits them to connect over HTTP and force HTTPS. This either happens after the first connection through HTTP (the server replies with some headers dictating ...

This is not your father's .ly Libya was under the control of Muammar Khadafi, author of the Pan Am 103 bombing and many other horrors. But Libya farmed out their TLD to a western company for hard cash, so it wasn't completely reckless to have all those adverb sites ending in .ly. Iran makes full use of .ir internally. Your site would be a guest of the ...

Secure Domain Space TLD's are encrypted at the domain level using HSTS. Theoretically you would still be able to connect to it for gaming, but hosted websites will be encrypted by default. HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is a web security policy mechanism that helps to protect websites against protocol downgrade attacks1 and cookie hijacking. ...

What happens if an old domain redirecting to a new domain expires? Expirations of domain names can not be seriously discussed without knowing at least the TLD, and even better the full domain itself to know its sponsoring registrar. Registry and registrar rules and custom procedures vary by TLD. Typically, a domain expiring can exhibit the following ...

I'd like to register a .ir domain for a neat domain hack, but it seems to be quite difficult as it's Iranian. This is not the only problem you have to take into account. Once you get the domain of your wish, if you do, you have to remember that the domain, and its use, is still bound to Iranian laws. You may lose it, or worse, if you do not abide by those ...
