How to redirect a requests to a whole space to a whole new Confluence instance?

We have exported one of our spaces and imported it then in a new confluence instance. Is it possible to redirect request to the space in the "old" confluence instance to the new one from within confluence?

Otherwise i thought of creating the redirect rules directly in the reverse proxy of the old confluence instance. What do you think?

Kind regards
