    Hi Devan - Community Manager, thanks, would the above solution work across brands, it should from what I've seen but I wonder how SEO might be impacted. We are keen to retain relevance whilst redirecting to our new brand.  Any help from the moderator team would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi David,

    For a hostmapped domain (example: cocacola.com/help) you can set-up a 301 Redirect via a .htaccess file.

    Using the .htaccess method won't impact your SEO. The JS redirect might have impact on your SEO.
    From an SEO point of view, a JavaScript redirect is not the most optimal way of redirecting because search engines need to render a page to find the redirectRedirecting using a 301 redirect is always recommended (except if you're looking to temporarily redirect)

    Articles still have the same ID
    If your articles still have the same ID, then you need 1 redirect line.

    Articles with changed IDs
    You will need a single redirect line for each article if your articles no longer have the same article ID.
