    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for asking. You can redirect your traffic on “” to “” during the migration process by adding the following line in the .htaccess file at the root directory of “”

    Redirect 301 /

    In this way, you can redirect all your traffic to your temporary site without changing any configuration of your original WordPress site.

    I believe, this will help. Please let us know if you have any confusion or any further query. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
