What is URL Redirection/Cloaking and how does it work?
Posted by Rowena Barrett on 04 November 2019 04:48 PM

URL redirection is the action of pointing your domain name to another website, or to a folder within an existing website. The target URL may be cloaked (hidden) using the first option, or left visible using the second option, depending on your choice.

To cloak your target URL with your domain name, choose the first option.

To redirect your base domain name to a target URL, leave the field after your domain name blank, and complete the Target URL field, and select "Update Domain".

If you wish to redirect a specific URL on your domain name to a target URL, then include this in the field after your domain name. For example, you could redirect mydomain.co.nz/customers/index.php to a target URL of your choice including a full path and page name.

Each specific page/directory URL redirection you implement will be listed at the bottom of the page, where at any time you can choose to delete them individually or all at once.
