    You will lose valuable visitors, rankings in Serp, there is no guarantee that your new site will rank as your old site. My suggestion is to keep the old as it is now because of no updates from Google. If you still wants to do then it's upto you, but ranking doesn't happen on the new website.

    In the directory of your old website, create a new .htaccess file or edit the existing .htaccess file and add the code below:

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*) yourwebsite.com [R=301,L]:

    Now, visitors who go to your old website will automatically be redirected to the homepage of your new website.
