Hey! I got this idea.

Github allows you to set custom domain right? (Tutorial)

Add a custom domain first. Then, your Github will automatically redirect your traffic to custom domain (I think).

After that, set up Google search console and add your domain.

After that, you can migrate to whatever host you need. You don't have to redirect because the domain is the same.

What do you think?

Not sure if I understand, but every steps, like pointing domain to GitHub seems to take time...
