Hi. Have a long running website. For reasons beyond my control had to change the domain name to another. Instructions for this case read in google-guide.

Question to all: share your real experience. Maybe there are some clever solutions?
- How much the site subsides?
- Will the new domain will have the same position?
- How does google react? How do other search engines react?

Yes, I transferred my site to https recently, my hosting has started to provide a free certificate. So far I can not say anything, because little time has passed, the traffic in place, when google indexes the new address, then you will see. But it seems to me, nothing will change, it will be better, especially for the promotion in google.

Well, I actually asked about moving to another domain, not just about changing the protocol of interaction between the user and the resource.
It used to be: myaltdomain.com, now it is myaltdomain1.com.
Let me repeat: this is a forced measure.

Got it.
It'll go down for a month or a month and a half. Maybe a little more. And don't forget about proper relocation. Redirect 301, settings in webmaster, google in Search Console...

I once had the question of moving, but as practice and theory, as well as feedback from those who still dared, the position sag very much and return to previous positions may take up to six months, perhaps more. Personally, I would not recommend you move to a new domain. But as it happened...

Proper redirect will save. Very important: not only the main page, but all the rest. All without exception, look in the dashboard metrics query frequency.
The task you have, - not to envy.

After the transfer, which I understand you did, a quick reindexing in webmaster panels will help a lot.
Also you will need paid thematic traffic to the site.
Just buy it on the appropriate exchange.
