Select one of the following redirect methods:
Redirect all requests for myolddomain.wisc.edu to an informational page explaining that the site has a new URL and instructing users to update their bookmarks/links. Users will then be automatically bounced to the home page of mynewdomain.wisc.edu after 10 seconds via meta refresh.
Automatically redirect all requests for any pages within myolddomain.wisc.edu/* to the home page of mynewdomain.wisc.edu (other examples: mynewdomain.wisc.edu/subsite/ or mynewdomain.wisc.edu/subsite/newpage.html)
Automatically redirect all requests for myolddomain.wisc.edu/* and match the relative path to the page at mynewdomain.wisc.edu/*.
For Example: myolddomain.wisc.edu/subfolder/page.html ⇒ mynewdomain.wisc.edu/subfolder/page.html
