    Hello All,

    Good Morning. We are going to move our domain to another domain by implementing 301 permanent redirection with same site structure according to Google.

    Now my question is how can we tell to our customer that we are moving our domain on a new domain? Should we go with some home page banner or Email to all possible customers?

    Give some examples or tell me it should be done to announced or not?

    After the move is done, notify your current customers that the domain has changed, and let them know the new domain. Of course, you should advertise the new domain after the move. Any ads running with the current domain can be allowed to expire, as anyone going to the old domain will be automatically redirected. I wouldn't use a banner, but, after the move, you can add a short paragraph to the home page announcing the move until any ads running with the old domain expire, or for a set period of time so you can make sure the old domain is not getting any traffic.
