    301 Redirect from old html pages

    I recently moved from Godaddy basic web hosting to the new GoCentral template system. The best I can tell there is no way to 301 redirect from my old html pages to the new GoCentral pages. Is that true and if so, how does GoDaddy justify not having such a basic and important feature?

    Hi @JW2. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! Unfortunately, this isn't currently a feature in GoCentral. I'm not sure if that's by design or oversight, but I will pass on your feedback to our product team.

    Even if there is no interface for it, can tech support setup redirects? There is a big focus on SEO features on the platform. Redirects are certainly a big part of that. Plus, potential customers really hate dead links. They look unprofessional.

    @JW2 - I definitely understand your point. Unfortunately, our support team would not be able to create a redirect for your account. Sorry Man Sad

    Understood, but very surprised that it can't be done. That really needs to change. I cannot mark this as solved.
