Redirecting A Subdomain To A Custom Domain
Create a site-wide 301 redirect to redirect from one host to another. This can be useful if you want to redirect from your subdomain to a custom domain. To get started navigate to "SITE" > "SEO" > "Redirect" found in the main toolbar. Please note that this will take effect once you log out of your SiteBlocks website.
Select your domains from the following drop-down menus found under the "Redirect" tab in the SEO Manager:
Redirect from: Select the domain you would like to redirect from. When people visit this domain, it will direct them to the destination domain.
Redirect to: This is the domain you would like to redirect to. This is the website people will see in the address bar when vising that website.
Note that redirects from "SITE" > "SEO" > "Redirect" are permanent 301 redirects. This is a special type of redirect that is designed for long-term redirects. If you would like to remove this redirect, you still can with a few extra considerations.
To remove your redirect, clear the "Redirect to" and "Redirect from" fields by selecting the blank fields at the top of the drop-down list.
Please note that this change will not take effect until you log out of your browser. If the redirect is still in effect, you may need to clear your cache in your browser.
Renaming A Page With Redirects
If you are renaming a page on your website, it might be a good idea to add a page redirect. This way, if any of your visitors can still see your page if they try to access the old page address.
To rename your page, go to "PAGES" > Click the cogwheel icon next to your page > "Settings" to access the Page Settings Menu. You can rename your page without altering the URL by only editing the Page Title.
If you would like to update your page URL, you can alter the Page URL field to your new page name. Once you alter this field, an option will appear to "Redirect your old page", once you select this option your redirect will be put into place.
