Soooo, I need to switch their site to a new hosting company AND build their new site. Originally, I was thinking I would like to buy them a new domain that adds their biggest keyword along with their brand + '.com'. Then I would build the site on the new domain (and new hosting) without there being any upset to the old site. Once everything was finished I would just point the old domain to the new. BUT then I realized I would probably be losing all the old domain's age juice if I point the old domain to the new. Is that right?
I was thinking this would be a relatively smooth transition, but now realizing it may be tougher if I have to somehow build the new site onto the old domain (after switching it to the new host). I really don't want the old site to have to go down for 2 weeks.
They are not really ranking for anything at all right now even after all these years, but still I would like to keep their domain age if possible. Any advice anyone can give on this? I think my biggest question is if I point the old domain to the new, I am losing their domain age correct? (i.e. the old domain won't transfer it's age to the new, am I right in that assumption?)
