Add Site Redirects

If the site URL changes, a redirect forwards one URL (source) to another URL (target). This helps to preserve user bookmarks and search engine rankings.

Two types of redirects can be used:

  • A permanent redirect, which uses a 301 HTTP service response code

  • A temporary redirect, which uses a 302 HTTP service response code

To upload a redirect.json file:

  1. Open a site for editing.

  2. Click Settings icon in the sidebar and then click the redirect icon Redirects.

  3. Click Select file to upload and navigate to the file you want to use, select it, then click OK.

  4. When you publish the update, the changes are published and put into use.
