Hi All,

I am planning to change the domain. 
We get around 15k hits per month.

We don't want to loose them.

Can you guys guide me the proper steps.

Below code is good enough?

Old : www.india-drive.com
New: www.drifod.com

RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^india-drive\.com$ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.india-drive\.com$
  RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.drifod.com/$1 [R=301,L]


Do we need to update anything related to google?
Any changes required from Invision side, apart from URL in client area?

The steps here can be followed for changing your domain name as well. You will need to request a URL change in your client area to update the registered URL for your license before re-entering your license key in the ACP (we make special provisions for things like changing http to https or adding "www." at the beginning of your domain, but if you move to an entirely new domain you'll need to update your license with us to let us know).

With Google, if you use webmaster tools you'll need to register your new URL there and follow the steps they provide.

Otherwise old URLs will automatically redirect to the new location so long as your old domain is still pointed to your community installation.
