Hi Everyone,

I just acquired the domain  I am forwarding it to my Shopify store  I don't want to lose the backlinks for  I don't know how to tell what pages have been indexed so that I can create redirects.  Does anyone have suggestions how to properly setup a forwarding domain so that I don't get 404 from the old pages?

The simplest way to redirect your URL is by using the control panel of your hosting provider. After that, the following steps could be followed:
