    Guys,
    One of my clients under trial with a local authority which wants to ban his website from the entire state but not from other states and countries.


    Currently the website is voluntarily suspended and put under maintenance.


    Because he doesn't want to lose sales I was thinking of the following solutions:


    #1 redirect the website to a new domain before of the banning: will I rank if the old domain gets banned? if so, will it loose rankings?




    #2 What if the homepage is kept under maintenance in order to show I behave well so I don't get the domain banned, but I run all the landing pages that give traffic. Will it loose rankings?


    Thank you in advance to everyone

    I cant see how it will hurt his rankings,
    His reputation yes
    Doing a 301 Redirect might be dodgy, as the courts might see this as a workaround
    of their laws, You would need a lawyer to answer that Question.
