Hi Jared P,

 

Welcome to the community...!

 

Two years is a very long period when you consider the changes happened in Adwords. So please gather as much as information available about new adwords features before restarting your campaign. If you are familiar with new features, please go ahead and make the changes

 

You have two options.

 

1. Create a new campaign with your ads pointing to your new website URL.

 

2. Edit your old campaign (if you want to use the same keywords, ads and account structure) and change your destination URLs (ad level or keyword level).

 

Find more information about about editing your destination URLs below

You can use adwords editor to make these changes fast.

 

Note - Editing your ads will actualy delete your old ads and its performance history, but as you have a new website this cannot be avoided.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Deepak
