Reply To: I know the absolute obvious answer to this, but for a website relaunch & migration to a new eCommerce platform, the owner and a third party are ADAMENT about running the new website and the old website simultaneously, live online, for customers to use either site. Please confirm this is dumb.

You know this, so I don’t need to spell it out for you. I will just give you my two cents:

This is stupid.

This is dumb.

The client’s SEO will be negatively affected and they will confuse and piss off their users.

I do migrations all the time. If someone came in and told the client that what I’d said was wrong and to run both sites at the same time, the guy would end up on his ass. What’s this guy’s credentials? Why is he involved in the project?

6 months is NOTHING for a site redesign (as I’m sure you well know.)
