I have a question about new domain name, accounts & url redirects
I own a shopify store & account: 'www.oldsite.com' (oldsite.myshopify.com) that i want to close down. I am now in the process of building a brand new shopify store: 'www.newsite.com' on a new account (newsite.myshopify.com)
I will want to redirect traffic from 'oldsite.com' to 'newsite.com'
I would like to redirect each individual page independently as some of the url structure will be different, mainly because i am changing the site's main language and that some products names/handles will have to be changed. I am aware i can do URL redirects on 'oldsite' pointing to 'newsite'. Problem i see is i am afraid that when i terminate 'oldsite.myshopify.com' plan, the redirects will be lost.
How does one smartly go about this?

Hi, my suggestion for this case
This is an accepted solution.
If you opt for Pause and Build plan, the redirects should stay active, but I don't know if it is a good solution.
It is quite laborious manage the redirect for hundreds or thousands of URL from the backend, in this case it is probably better that you opt for an .htaccess solution, easier to manage (more rules flexibility).
