I asked this question a few months ago but thought I would ask again as I'm about to change domain names. I am on go central and not Wordpress hosting.
My SEO results are being handicapped by the fact I have two websites that don't redirect to the same final address. www.comm-safe.com and comm-safe.com google doesn't like this i am told.
I want it so that they ultimately end up at www.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @bensim90 - In order to have things set up the way you want them, you essentially need two things:
Currently, there's no way to set up a redirect within GoCentral. However, I was able to make this work by following the steps listed below. Bear with me as this is a bit complicated.
Once all of these changes have time to apply (may take a few hours) your domain should forward with a 301 redirect to the WWW version of your domain name. Hope this helps.
Jesse, thank you very much for your comprehensive response and sorry for my deleted reply!
I am about to try this now and will report back!!
Hello everyone. I wanted to post an update here to avoid future confusion. The message I posted above was a workaround and did work at the time. However, a few things have changed since then and the workaround is no longer viable. For one, all GoCentral websites now have a free SSL Certificate and automatically use HTTPS (this is good ). However, in order to direct domain.com to www.domain.com, our domain forwarding was used. This service does not currently (nor has it ever) support the use of HTTPS, so it can no longer be used to forward your domain with incoming HTTPS://domain.com requests. Sorry
