How do I use a site redirect to forward web traffic elsewhere?

Posted by Daniel on April 19, 2006

Site redirection allows you to forward visitors to somewhere else on your site, or to another web site altogether. For instance, traffic to http://www.yourdomain.com/news could be forwarded to http://www.cnn.com, or http://www.yourdomain.com/news/world/economy.

From your dashboard, choose a plan to manage. Click the website tab and click the redirects link. Click the create a new redirect link. In the From Path field enter the local URL path that you want to redirect elsewhere. This will take the form of: /directoryname. For example, enter /news to forward traffic from http://www.yourdomain.com/news

Tip: Enter a slash (/) by itself to forward all visitors to your domain (http://www.yourdomain.com) to the specified Redirect URL.

Choose a redirect type and enter the URL you want to forward to in the Redirect URL field, then click Save redirect.

To delete an existing redirect, click the delete icon.
