Domain Redirects

Please note this module is not installed by default; if you are NOT a Site Builder you will need to submit a Service Request to have it activated on your site.

The Domain Redirect function allows a site manager to redirect a path from a separate domain to a location in their SiteFarm site. This process is only possible AFTER your SiteFarm site has launched.

Understanding Redirects

What is a Redirect?

A redirect is a behind-the-scenes instruction that a website provides to a visitor's browser that lets the browser know that the original URL location requested is actually named something else or located somewhere else, and it sends the browser to that new location.

What Makes a Great 404 Error Page?

No one wants to think website visitors are spending time on error pages, but it happens. The 404 error page is one place that these interactions happen rather frequently. Design it in a way that speaks to users rather than encouraging them to leave your site.

Fix 404 Pages

The Fix 404 pages option is different than designating a 404 error page for your site. This feature lets you know what people have tried to navigate to directly but received an error page. Either a search engine has an older link still in its index that people are clicking on or a visitor has a bookmark that is out of date. In both cases, you want to make their experience of being taken to the correct location as quick and seamless as possible.
